Are you planning a family?

For the couple considering parenthood, to the partner of a known genetic carrier, and the 35 year-old woman who wants to freeze her eggs.

For the woman who’s been trying for over 24 months to conceive, to the couple undergoing fertility treatments and those using a donor for IVF.

For the family who’d lost a child without a confirmed diagnosis, to the couple who has had multiple miscarriages.

Genetic counselling is for everyone.

Prepare for your pregnancy and family health

You may be a carrier for a genetic condition without even knowing it.
Carriers usually do not have any symptoms and may not have any family history of the condition they carry, making genetic screening important for everyone.

Knowing your and your partner’s carrier status can help you make informed decisions about your family’s health and offer you more reproductive choices.

Well-known cancer syndromes that can be inherited and confer increased risk of cancers

  • Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome:
  • Genes: BRCA1 or BRCA2.
  • Cancers: Breast, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate, melanoma
  • Women and men with BRCA1 or BRCA2 genetic mutations have a significantly higher risk of developing breast and other cancers than those without the mutations. Other cancers associated with the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes include ovarian, pancreatic, prostate, and melanoma.
  • Mismatch repair genes that cause Lynch syndrome. This is a hereditary disorder caused by mutations in the mismatch repair genes MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, PMS2, and EPCAM. People born with mutations in these genes have a significantly higher risk of developing colon, endometrial, and other cancers such as stomach, pancreas, urinary tract, or brain.
  • CDH1. Mutations in the CDH1 gene are associated with hereditary diffuse gastric cancer, a rare type of stomach cancer, as well as breast cancer.
  • PALB2. Inherited mutations in the PALB2 gene are associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. Sometimes, this mutation can also be found in families with multiple cases of pancreatic cancer.
  • STK11. A mutation in the STK11 gene causes Peutz-Jeghers syndrome. People with this condition have a higher-than-average risk of developing cancers of the breast, cervix, ovary, gastrointestinal tract, and pancreas.
  • PTEN. Mutations in the PTEN gene have been linked to an increased risk of breast, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, lung, and prostate cancers.
