Cancer Genetics

The Cancer Genetics Program provides consultations for individuals who may be at an increased risk of developing cancer.

Family history is often one clue to the possibility of a genetic predisposition to cancer. Other situations may prompt a referral to this clinic, including diagnosis of cancer at a young age, unusual types of cancer or certain tumor characteristics.

The UNC cancer genetics team is comprised of three board certified medical geneticists, several board certified genetic counselors, and faculty from the molecular diagnostic laboratory. This core team works with members of other multidisciplinary programs to provide fully integrated care for patients at UNC. All patients seen by this multidisciplinary team receive comprehensive risk assessment so that appropriate cancer preventative measures can be implemented when needed.
