Hereditary Cancer: How We Treat

How is hereditary cancer treated?

Hereditary cancer and genetic screening

An appointment in the Center for Cancers and Blood Disorders’ (CCBD) Hereditary Cancer Risk Assessment Clinic includes a consultation with the CCBD genetic counselor and an oncologist (cancer doctor).

Following the consultation, an individualized plan, which may include genetic testing and/or cancer surveillance and prevention strategies, is established based on physician and genetic counselor recommendations and family decisions.

Why choose Children’s Hospital Colorado for your child’s genetic counseling?

Children’s Colorado established the first genetic counseling program for the evaluation of hereditary cancers in children in the state of Colorado. The clinic’s American Board of Genetic Counselors certified genetic counselor works closely with CCBD physicians to provide cancer genetic counseling services.
