High-Risk Cancer Surveillance Clinic
At the Overlake High-Risk Cancer Surveillance Clinic, we are committed to providing specialized care for individuals at elevated risk of developing cancer. Our team of expert oncologists, genetic counselor and Cancer Center support staff are dedicated to delivering personalized, evidence-based strategies for early detection, prevention and management of high-risk cancers.
At the High-Risk Cancer Surveillance Clinic, our mission is to empower individuals with a high family or genetic predisposition to cancer by offering comprehensive risk assessment, genetic testing, counseling and proactive care plans. We aim to reduce the burden of cancer through early detection and personalized preventive measures while ensuring the highest standards of medical care and emotional support for our patients and their families.
Risk Assessment: We offer state-of-the-art genetic testing to detect hereditary cancer syndromes. These tests can identify specific genetic mutations that increase the likelihood of developing certain types of cancer. Our experienced genetic counselor will also conduct a thorough evaluation of your medical history, family history and lifestyle factors to assess your risk of developing cancer. This assessment allows us to identify individuals with elevated risk and create personalized care plans.
Counseling and Education: Our certified genetic counselor will guide you through the implications of your genetic test results and refer you to our High-Risk Surveillance Clinic where our specialized ARNP will coordinate ongoing surveillance and follow up. We also provide educational resources and ongoing support to help you and your family better understand and cope with the risk.
Preventive Screening: Early detection is critical in high-risk individuals. Our clinic provides a comprehensive range of screenings, including advanced imaging, molecular tests and biomarker assessments, tailored to your unique risk profile.
Risk-Reduction Strategies: Our ARNP will work closely with the genetic counselor to develop a personalized risk-reduction plan and provide follow-up appointments and monitoring, which may include lifestyle modifications, chemoprevention and other preventive measures to minimize your chances of developing cancer.
Surveillance and Follow-up: We offer regular follow-up appointments and monitoring to ensure your ongoing health and wellbeing. This proactive approach enables us to detect any potential cancerous changes at the earliest stage.
Multidisciplinary Approach: Our clinic fosters a collaborative approach to patient care. The Overlake Cancer Center works in collaboration with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center at the Overlake campus to provide world-class cancer care on the Eastside.
Access to Research: Our partnership with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center means our patients have access not only to the best oncologists, but also to clinical trials that are paving the way for the most advanced cancer treatments.
