Our expert says:
For genetic cancer testing and normal cancer screening, you can visit your nearest pathology lab, usually situated at private hospitals. It will be useful to provide them with the spesific types of cancers that were previously diagnosed within your family.
Other tests will be necessary in the case of breast cancer, where one will need a mammogram and ultrasound.
