Maine Medical Center - Cancer Program
The Cancer Risk and Prevention Clinic provides a family history evaluation and genetic risk assessment for individuals and families primarily in Southern Maine and New Hampshire. A visit includes a review of an individual’s personal and/or family history of cancer in order to evaluate possible hereditary cancer susceptibility disorders (HCSDs).
The genetic counselor explains genetics, inheritance, genetic syndrome differentials, available testing, possible testing outcomes, and research possibilities. A visit continues with the physician who reviews an individual’s personal history in order to provide a more personalized risk assessment. Furthermore, the doctor is available to answer medical questions, discuss differentials, and make recommendations for follow up surveillance, screening, and potential prevention.
Currently available clinic times are Tuesday afternoons from 12:30 – 4:00. Follow up visits may be scheduled on alternate days.
While direct patient care is the main focus, the Cancer Genetics Program also provides essential services and education to primary care physicians and other sub-specialists at MMC, in the community, as well as throughout the State of Maine and New Hampshire. To discuss a case or schedule education services please contact (207) 885-7591.
