Hereditary cancer risk assessment, counseling, and testing are becoming ever more complex as the understanding of the genetic components of disease grows. The demand for highly trained professionals with expertise in this field, such as genetic counselors, is also growing. Surgical oncologists are likely to encounter patients with hereditable cancer syndromes in their practice and should be able to identify patients appropriate for genetic assessment and counseling.
