Some childhood cancers have a hereditary predisposition due to an altered gene that is transmitted from parent to offspring. The Pediatric Cancer Predisposition Clinic at Children's Hospital of Georgia specializes in assessing for this risk through a combination of a patient’s cancer history, family history, and genetic testing. Results can influence patient care directly by influencing treatment recommendations or testing for additional or new cancers for which the patient may be at risk. The results can benefit the family members if they are also at risk.
