Wellmont Cancer Institute is committed to treating cancer when needed and preventing it when possible. With the goal of prevention in mind, the cancer institute offers a high-risk clinic for individuals who are potentially experiencing factors that could increase their risk of developing cancer. Learning about specific high-risk factors enables individuals and families to make choices to help reduce those risks.
