Parents often wonder what caused their child’s cancer, whether it is genetic, and whether other siblings may also be at risk.
The mapping of the human genome has ushered in the age of genetic testing for cancer risk. Sometimes, a gene that contributes to disease is carrying a mutation, which can lead to a higher risk of cancer. Knowing which mutated genes are responsible for a particular cancer enable physicians to determine, through genetic testing, which members of a patient’s family may have the same mutations and be at higher risk.
