A small percentage of benign and cancerous tumors of bone and soft
tissue may be related to an inherited gene passed from one generation of
a family to the next. For this reason, patients who are evaluated at the
Musculoskeletal Tumor Center are offered referral to the Main Line
Health Cancer Risk Assessment and Genetics Program for genetics
assessment as indicated by their personal/family cancer history.
Identification of an inherited risk may impact the care of a patient and
the patient’s family members.
