Cancer Genetics Clinic
If you or someone you love is facing a cancer diagnosis, you want to find the best care as soon as possible. It is also important to know if there is a genetic component underlying your cancer. If so, other family members may be at risk, and your cancer may need specialized treatment.
The Cancer Genetics Program at Children’s Hospital partners with the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center’s Hereditary Cancer Program to provide genetic testing, cancer risk information for other family members, screening for cancer and advice on individualizing cancer treatment.
