Genetic counseling

If a close relative—mother, father, sibling or grandparent—had cancer, you may have a higher risk of getting cancer too. Genetic counselors are specially trained to help you understand that risk based on family history.

In partnership with Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Knight Cancer Institute, we provide genetic counseling for patients with various cancer diagnoses and those who may be at increased risk because of a family history of cancer. This service is available Tuesdays at Salem Health.
