The Cancer Genetics Clinic is part of Stanford’s
Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated center
offering genetic counseling and testing for individuals concerned with
the risk of an inherited cancer predisposition. The clinic staff
includes medical oncologists, genetic counselors, and geneticists.
It wouldn't be the best care possible if we didn't provide it in an
atmosphere that soothes your soul and makes navigating treatment
simple and convenient. By providing nourishing details like live piano
music in the entry, natural light throughout the building, and room
for your family to remain with you while you are receiving treatment,
the Stanford Cancer Center stands as a physical symbol of our concern
for your health and well-being.
In addition, a variety of services, and support staff are available
to help with emotional, physical, or social challenges that you might
encounter while receiving cancer care. Visit Cancer
Patient Services to learn more about the variety of programs and
services we offer.
Support groups and classes
The importance of support groups and their impact on cancer patient
outcomes is well established; much of this important work has come
from support groups at Stanford. Psychiatrists, psychologists, and
social workers are involved in cancer support groups within the program.
This video explains how Stanford doctors use the genetics of individual tumors to design a personalized treatment for best results and to guide development of new treatments.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
