Cancer Genetics Program

A collaboration with Carolinas HealthCare System and the Seby B. Jones Cancer Center via telehealth to make Cancer Genetics available to our patients.

What is offered?

The initial visit would be with a genetic counselor via telehealth to review the patients personal and family history, discuss the risks and benefits of genetic testing, and provide support in healthcare decision making. This visit is free of charge.

If a patient elects to proceed with testing, the blood test will be drawn at our Cancer Center, with review of the cost/insurance coverage prior to testing.
Upon receipt of the results, they will be reviewed via telehealth with a genetic counselor and geneticist. This visit will allow for discussion on cancer risk, implication of these results for family members, recommendations on cancer management. Screening tests for prevention will be reviewed and appropriate referrals offered to the patient as well.

Who should be screened?

Patients who have a family history of the following:

  • Multiple or bilateral cancers
  • A known familial cancer syndrome
  • Two or more relatives with the same type of hereditary cancer like breast, colon, gastric, ovarian, or thyroid cancer
  • Cancer onset at an early age

Oncology Clinical Trials

The Oncology Clinical Research Department under the direction of Dr. Anna Sobol strives to offer opportunities for our mountain community to participate in research. Having studies that are open and accruing enables a greater number of High Country residents to participate in research. Learn more about our Oncology Clinical Research Department.
