Cancer Genetics

The Department of Molecular and Medical Genetics at OHSU in collaboration with the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute provides outpatient clinical consultation for patients with various cancer diagnoses and those who may be at increased risk of developing cancer due to family history. Clinics at the Center for Health and Healing provide services to patients with breast, ovarian, and GI tract cancers, as well as patients with a known hereditary predisposition to cancer. Patients with other known or suspected inherited cancer syndromes are also evaluated.
