Genetic Testing for Cancer - Is it Right for You? [VIDEO PODCAST]

We sat down with Dr. Sumeet Chandra, MD of Cancer Care Centers of Brevard to explore genetic testing for cancer. We ask him when it is appropriate to have genetic testing for cancer, what are the benefits, the downsides, and what type of guidance a patient needs when exploring genetic testing.

Find out why doctor's may encourage the testing when a patient is undergoing treatment. Learn when a patient's family member may consider getting tested and what actions might result from a positive test. Dr. Chandra provides insight into this emerging field and how it is helping doctors treat their patients.

Dr. Chandra is a Hematologist-Oncologist with an interest in treatment of cancers, genetic testing, clinical research, blood disorders, and genomic testing.
