Understanding Hereditary Breast Cancer

The Cancer Risk Clinic at the University of Chicago Comprehensive Cancer Center is designed for people who may have a higher risk of cancer because of their personal or family history.

Here, genetic testing, counseling, and a wide range of helpful resources are available for people at risk of hereditary cancers. Since 1992, doctors and counselors have offered guidance and support for women at risk of developing breast cancer.

Oncologist and genetics expert Funmi Olopade, MD, is one of the world's leading authorities on hereditary breast cancer and cancer risk assessment.
