May 22, 2015 —What is a family cancer syndrome? What tests are used
to check for the syndromes? Who should have genetic testing? According
to the American Cancer Society, certain inherited DNA mutations can intensely
increase the risk for developing certain cancers and are responsible for
many of the cancers that run in some families.
