Germline testing

The Familial Cancer team within the Molecular Pathology department at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre provides comprehensive diagnostic and predictive testing for a wide range of cancer predisposition genes

We work closely with geneticists, genetic counsellors and oncologists to determine whether cancer patients, at-risk family members or unaffected patients with a family history of cancer have an underlying genetic cause for their disease. Detecting germline variants in cancer predisposition genes can have diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic implications as well as enable preventative intervention in some settings.
