Hereditary Colorectal Cancer Multidisciplinary Program

At City of Hope, we have an expert multidisciplinary care team for individuals and their family members with Lynch syndrome, familial adenomatous polyposis, and other colon cancer-causing syndromes. In some families Lynch syndrome may develop into colorectal, ovarian, stomach, and other cancers. Familial adenomatous polyposis may lead to colorectal, thyroid, and brain tumors — among other cancers. Our team offers comprehensive hereditary syndrome care, including:

  • Genetic counseling
  • Precision cancer screening
  • Therapy

Our Expertise

“My job boils down to two things: Can we find the cause of the cancer predisposition and, if so, how can we keep an individual free from developing cancer once we’ve identified genes linked to it? If a genetic change is found early on, the potential exists to reverse destiny.”
Thomas Slavin, M.D., clinical geneticist
Our team spans several disciplines. For those who have a genetic predisposition for cancer, that means expanded access to leading-edge surgical methods, therapies, surveillance and clinical trials.
