Clinical Genetics Service

People with certain rare genetic disorders may be at risk for some brain tumors:

  • Li-Fraumeni syndrome and neurofibromatosis type 1 increase the risk of glioma.
  • Von Hippel-Lindau disease increases the risk of hemangioblastoma.
  • Tuberous sclerosis increases the risk of astrocytoma.
  • Neurofibromatosis type 2 increases the risk of acoustic neuroma and meningioma.

If you have been told you have one of these disorders, you may want to consider genetic counseling and testing. Roswell Park’s Clinical Genetics Service has formally trained genetic counselors who specialize exclusively in assessing inherited cancer risk.
