LFS Screening Program
The Li-Fraumeni Program is housed within the Clinical Cancer Genetics Program at MD Anderson Cancer Center. The clinic is designed to provide augmented cancer screening and surveillance for individuals with a germline / inherited TP53 mutation consistent with Li-Fraumeni syndrome- a hereditary cancer syndrome with a high lifetime risk of many various cancers.

To set up an appointment, please contact us and specify that that you would like to be scheduled in the Li-Fraumeni Screening clinic. In general, LFS screening begins once a patient is ~6 months out from their active cancer diagnosis. We also follow unaffected individuals with LFS with high-risk surveillance (including whole-body MRIs).
