We help you understand the present so you can make decisions for your future

Genetics play a large role in overall well-being. If you or a close relative has had cancer, that could indicate a cancer risk is in your genes. For patients choosing to learn more about future cancer risk, the genetic counseling clinic at Novant Health Cancer Institute – New Hanover is here for you. 

Located within Novant Health Zimmer Cancer Institute, our clinic offers genetic counseling services to help you understand your cancer risk and ways to manage it. We look at your personal and family health histories, and use advanced tools to look into your genetics and assess your personal cancer risks. Our team will help you make sense of those risks and consider what course of action is right for you to lessen or eliminate those risks when possible.

Our clinic is within Novant Health New Hanover Regional Medical Center on South 17th Street between Shipyard Boulevard (Highway 117) and Highway 17. We are convenient to greater Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Leland, Ocean Isle Beach, Southport, North Myrtle Beach and the rest of Carolina coast.
