The Pediatric Cancer Risk Program (PCRP) at Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center provides multidisciplinary, consultative care to patients and their families whose condition or family history suggests an increased risk of cancer.

Our program offers patients access to expert pediatric geneticists, genetic counselors and other specialists at Boston Children’s Hospital as well as world-renowned pediatric oncologists from Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

The first of its kind in New England, our program accepts referrals, second opinions and consultations for evaluation of:

  • children who have cancers with known hereditary links
  • children whose genetic defects are associated with cancer development
  • children with family histories that place them at a higher risk for cancer development

Our expertise

  • Our integrated approach to care offers comprehensive evaluation and follow-up for children at risk for cancer.  If needed, we will also recommend referrals to additional specialists.
     
  • All cases are reviewed in a multidisciplinary clinic conference.
     
  • In addition, adult family members of at-risk children may be referred to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Cancer Genetics and Prevention Program.
     
  • A cancer risk assessment can provide additional information about cancer risk and appropriate screening. A certified genetic counselor assesses each case according to individual needs, coordinates all patient visits and determines if the patient should be seen by an oncologist at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center or a geneticist at Boston Children's Hospital.
