Cancer Genetics

Cancer genetics provides counseling and screening for both pediatric and adult patients at personal risk for hereditary cancer predisposition syndromes and family members with a family history of predisposition for cancer. 

  • We facilitate diagnosis by determining inherited risk factors, provide pre and post test canceling for the variety of genetic testing that is available, and help coordinate testing of patients and their family members.  
  • We have an active participation in medical student, medical genetic resident, and genetic counseling education in both our inpatient hospital and outpatient clinical settings.
