At a minimum, HBOC risk assessment should include the woman’s personal cancer history; her maternal and paternal first-, second-, and third-degree relative cancer histories, with descriptions of the types of primary cancers and the ages of onset; any Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry; and the results of any cancer predisposition testing in any relative.This assessment should be reviewed and updated regularly.

These specialists can provide genetictesting if indicated and desired, psychosocial support, and evidence-based management that depends on identified risk and genetic testing results—if such testing is done. Primary care providers with appropriate training and skills, including WHNPs, may provide HBOC genetic counseling and testing.An evidence-based protocol established according to guidelines provided by nationally recognized organizations such as NCCN must be followed to ensure that all recommended components of assessment, counseling, informed consent, appropriate testing, and follow-up are provided....
