Today, we welcome a new contributor to the CancerHQ family. Dr. Mark Lewis joins us from the Oncology and Hematology department at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
Dr. Mark was inspired to become an oncologist after watching his father courageously battle cancer. Recently, Dr. Mark was diagnosed with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1, a hereditary disorder that predisposes to cancer. This discovery, coupled with his father’s passing, heightened his curiosity about the genetics of cancer, and deepened this commitment towards serving patients, their families and the cancer community at large.
Dr. Mark will offer the CancerHQ community his expertise on Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia and other inherited cancers.
Dr. Mark Lewis was born in Scotland but moved to America during elementary school.
