Genetics

The purpose of a genetics consultation is to assess a cancer risk by considering the patient’s personal and family history, and by performing genetic tests, generally from a blood sample. Another goal is to make appropriate treatment recommendations. Outpatients are given a questionnaire about personal and family history and their reason for seeking a consultation, which is used to make an initial analysis and decide whether or not a consultation is indicated. The questionnaire can also be used to assess whether a relative, for whom genetic testing would be the first line of treatment, should also seek a consultation.

To find out whether a genetic consultation at Institut Curie is indicated in your case, please download and fill out the attached questionnaire and then send it to the address below:

Service de Génétique, Unité de Génétique Clinique, 26 rue d'Ulm, 75248 Paris cedex 5, France

Consultations take place at two sites: Paris 5 and Saint-Cloud. If you are offered an appointment, the site that we spcify will depend on the predisposition in question and your address.

You will receive an answer as promptly as possible (link to the questionnaire for download).
