Cancer Genetics Counselling Services

Cancer Genetics Services are also known as Family Cancer Services or Hereditary Cancer Clinics.

Genetic counselling for people with a family history of cancer is available at services around Australia.

Genetic testing may be available for some families. Your local Cancer Genetics Service can provide you with information about genetic testing and other issues regarding hereditary cancer.

Medicare usually covers the cost of these services.

Visit the Center for Genetics Education website for an up-to-date list of Cancer Genetics Clinics around Australia.
