Comprehensive Cancer Center Freiburg - CCCF

Freiburg Center for Familial Breast and Ovarian Cancer of the German Consortium

Have you or your family been diagnosed with breast cancer or ovarian cancer?

We would like to clarify with you whether the risk of cancer is generally increased in your family. This is the case if a genetic change is partly responsible for the development of cancer. These genetic changes are called mutations and can be inherited. Important indications of this are a frequent occurrence of breast and ovarian cancer in the family, cancers at a younger age and so-called second tumors.

We are here for you!

Would you like genetic counseling with molecular genetic testing if necessary?

Then make an appointment with us using our questionnaire.
