The implementation of universal genetic testing recommendations for individuals with pancreatic cancer has improved access to genetic testing and diagnosis of hereditary cancer predisposition syndromes. However, inherited pancreatic cancer predisposition syndromes are only a piece of a much larger, complex picture. What risk factors contribute to a person’s risk for pancreatic cancer? Why do some individuals develop pancreatic cancer and others do not? What is genetic testing and how can it benefit individuals and their family members? In this webinar, we break down currently known risk factors for pancreatic cancer, including genetic and environmental factors, and the role of clinical genetic testing in both clinical care and research initiatives.
