Cancer Genetics Clinic
(734)647-8906

The Cancer Genetics Clinic at the U-M Health System is for people who are concerned about their own risk or other family member's risk of cancer. Although most cancers are not "inherited," some families are particularly susceptible to cancer and may benefit from early detection or other risk reduction strategies. The specialists of the Cancer Genetics Clinic help patients and their families understand genetic contributions to cancer and develop personalized plans to manage their risk. Genetic testing is helpful for some families. For others, comprehensive risk assessment and genetic counseling provide enough information to develop a plan for lowering the risk of cancer.
