Erin Hofstatter, MD, from Smilow Cancer Hospital and Yale Medical School, gives some indications that should prompt a patient or family member to go for genetic counseling and testing.

Hofstatter goes over the “classic red flags” that can indicate hereditary cancer risk and a need for genetic counseling and testing, including patients or family members diagnosed at a younger age or if the family history has a clustering of breast and ovarian cancer, or breast, ovarian and pancreatic cancers.
