Answer

Genetic counseling for families with Li-Fraumeni syndrome should be provided to ensure appropriate understanding of potential risk and possible evaluation of genetic predisposition markers.

In addition, Li-Fraumeni syndrome patients can develop high levels of anxiety, depression, and clinically relevant distress. Psychological monitoring is important, and appropriate support should be provided.
