Genetic discoveries are advancing medicine, particularly cancer care.  The ability to identify a genetic predisposition to cancer has prevention, screening, diagnostic, and therapeutic implications. This program will describe and discuss new clinical genetic tests that are available for hereditary cancer syndromes as well as identify pros and cons of these new genetic tests with respect to understanding cancer risk and cancer screening/prevention.
