Hereditary Cancer Screening

Women’s Wellness Comprehensive Care offers screening, counseling and testing to diagnose Hereditary Cancer Syndromes for women with a family or personal history of breast, ovarian, colon and uterine cancers. Certain gene mutations are passed on among families that put patients at an extremely significant risk for development cancer in their lifetime. A simple saliva or blood sample for BRCA testing and Lynch Testing can determine whether a patient has these mutations so that proactive steps can be taken to reduce their cancer risk or even prevent cancer from developing at all in themselves or family members. Click here to learn more about the red flags.

If you think you may be at risk, you may complete a confidential, highly secure online quiz customized for Women’s Wellness that will send your results of the screen directly to Dr. Rainville. Click here to take the online quiz.

Women’s Wellness Staff will contact you once the results have been evaluated to schedule your consultation visit. Or if you prefer, you may complete a paper version in person. All patients are screened routinely at the office in according with ACOG’s guidelines for cancer prevention for women.
