Have you or your child been diagnosed with cancer predisposition syndrome (CPS) through genetic testing? Or have clear clinical symptoms led to a diagnosis of CPS? In either case, it’s not good news.

Furthermore, the diagnosis of a cancer predisposition syndrome often comes as a shock to those affected. It means there’s an increased likelihood of developing cancer in their lifetime. Many CPSs also come with additional life restrictions and an increased need for medical treatment. However, the correct diagnosis of CPS is crucial for optimal treatment.

After diagnosis, you will typically receive comprehensive information about your cancer predisposition syndrome. Additionally, seeking specialized consultation solely focused on CPS, such as at one of our outpatient clinics, can be beneficial.
