Genetic Testing

According to the National Cancer Institute, genetic testing is used to identify specific inherited changes (mutations) in a person’s chromosomes, genes, or proteins. Genetic mutations can have harmful, beneficial, neutral (no effect), or uncertain effects on health. Mutations that are harmful may increase a person’s chance or risk of developing a disease such as cancer.

Conditions We Treat

Genetic testing is available at the Belpre Cancer Center and should be considered if you have a parent and/or grandparent who had certain types of cancer and were diagnosed at a young age for certain types of cancer. These types of cancer include:

  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Melanoma
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Uterine cancer

Services We Offer

  • Genetic blood testing
  • Genetic counseling
  • Preventive cancer clinical trials

Why Choose Us

Compassionate Patient-Centered Care

We focus on providing patient/family-centered care. We provide all cancer services in a single location, including treatment, imaging, procedures, and physician appointments. We involve patients at each step of the care process, and always keep them informed of what’s happening with their health care plan.

Nationally Recognized Leader in Community Cancer Care

Our Center has been accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) and the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACS). We’ve been designated as a comprehensive community cancer program, which demonstrates our commitment to bringing the latest in effective, research-backed cancer treatments close to where our patients live and work.

Access to the Latest Care Through Clinical Trials

Memorial Health System is one of the most active clinical trial sites in Ohio. Through ongoing nationally recognized cancer research and trials, we are able to offer treatments that won’t be available to the general public for months or even years from now. We are proud of our role in finding new ways to treat and beat cancer on all fronts.

Coordinated Care with Specialty Providers

When needed, our team can coordinate care with other specialty providers across the Memorial Health System network. We work to streamline care so patients can focus on getting well, instead of spending lots of time coordinating medical appointments and specialists.
