The UNM Cancer Center has its own laboratory to perform most lab tests on site. You will receive a separate bill from UNM Hospitals for laboratory services. If you choose to have your blood drawn at a different laboratory, or if your doctor or insurance provider tells you that you must do so: 1) ask your doctor for a prescription and instructions for getting your blood tested at a lab that is not part of the UNM System; 2) ask the lab for a copy of your blood results and bring them with you to your next appointment; and 3) ask the lab to fax your blood results to your doctor at the UNM Cancer Center at 505-925-0100. Please have your lab tests completed one or two days before your appointment.
The UNM Hospitals/Department of Radiology provides diagnostic and interventional imaging services for the UNM Cancer Center. Radiology involves a team of highly dedicated physicians, nurses, technologists and staff specializing in imaging for screening, diagnosis, intervention and surveillance. Your doctor will order imaging or image-guided procedures, when indicated, and will review the results with you, usually after consultation with the radiologist who interprets your examination. If your physician orders an imaging service, you will receive a call from the UNM Hospitals/Department of Radiology to schedule the procedure. If you do not receive that call within three working days after your appointment with your doctor, please call 505-272-4545.
The UNM Cancer Center’s Hereditary Cancer Assessment Program provides genetic counseling and testing relevant to cancer. It is available for people who want to determine if they have a higher risk for developing cancer based on their family history. Generally, people with an increased risk of hereditary cancer are those who 1) have family members with multiple cases of cancer, 2) have multiple family members with related or the same types of cancers and/or 3) were diagnosed with certain cancers before age 45. Ask your doctor if you would benefit from genetic counseling and testing.
