About the Cancer Genetics Program
Stanford's Cancer Genetics Program doctors and researchers have been
instrumental in developing many of the leading technologies used to
understand, diagnose, test and screen for hereditary cancer syndromes.
This expertise allows our specialists to offer you personalized plans
for managing your cancer risk.
At the Stanford Cancer Genetics Program, our goals are to educate
people about familial cancer, provide clear options for medical or
surgical interventions, and enhance the quality of life for high risk
Counselors in the program can provide assistance and information on
all hereditary cancers. Once genetic test results are available the
genetic oncology specialists will offer specific options and
recommendations for you.
