EDGe BRCA+ Men’s Clinic

EDGe BRCA+ Men’s Clinic

The EDGe (Early Detection in Genetics) BRCA+ Men’s Clinic provides screening and follow-up care for men age 40 and older with identified mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, which are closely associated with high risk for cancer.

If you have one of these identified mutations, our team will coordinate one or two visits per year for you to access a variety of cancer screenings. At your first enrollment visit, you will meet with a genetic counselor who will introduce the program, gather updated family history, review screening recommendations, and review the status of cascade testing in the family. Through the clinic, you will be connected with the following specialties:

  • Urology (prostate cancer screening)
  • High-Risk Breast Center (breast cancer screening)
  • Dermatology (skin cancer screening)
  • Gastroenterology (pancreatic cancer screening, if indicated)

To schedule an appointment in the EDGe BRCA+ Men’s Clinic, contact the Department of Urology at 312.695.8146 (TTY: 711).
