Abstract:
Several studies have explored the psychological impact of genetic counseling or testing in women with family histories of breast or ovarian cancer. The most common constructs measured include cancer-related worry, cancer-related distress, state anxiety and trait anxiety along with perceived risk. Results have most frequently shown that worry, distress, and state anxiety are high prior to counseling or testing regardless of risk level. Less is known about depressive symptoms associated with the process of genetic counseling and testing. The goal of this study was to assess symptoms of depression in women participating in an ovarian cancer early detection program. Study participants included 368 women, 83% return patients and 18% new patients. Women ranged in age from 23 to 81.
