Pediatric Cancer Risk Program
Our Innovative Approach
Our integrated approach to care offers comprehensive evaluation and follow-up for children at risk for cancer. If needed, we will also recommend referrals to additional specialists.
All cases are reviewed in a multidisciplinary clinic conference.
In addition, adult family members of at-risk children may be referred to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Cancer Genetics and Prevention Program.
- A cancer risk assessment can provide additional information about cancer risk and appropriate screening. A certified genetic counselor assesses each case according to individual needs, coordinates all patient visits and determines if the patient should be seen by an oncologist at Dana-Farber/Children's Hospital Cancer Center or a geneticist at Boston Children's Hospital.
