From the reviews: "Inherited Cancer Syndromes was specifically designed to educate physicians and health care workers about the genetic aspects, in the clinical setting, of inherited syndromes of cancer. ! This book provides the knowledge base needed for most physicians to incorporate the principles of inherited susceptibility to cancer and genetic testing properly into their practices. It is highly recommended reading, since many physicians and health care workers have not been trained in this area, which has become an established part of clinical medicine." (Randall W. Burt, The New England Journal of Medicine, Issue 11, November, 2004)From the Publisher:
Of the 8 million individuals living with cancer in the United States, up to 800,000 patients have a form of inherited cancer. Inherited cancer syndromes account for 5-10 per cent of all cancers, as evidenced by recent advances in the understanding of such syndromes as Familial Polyposis Syndromes (FAP), Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colon Cancer (HPNCC), and the BRCA1 and 2 breast cancer susceptibility genes. "Inherited Cancer Syndromes: Current Clinical Management" provides the clinician with a valuable tool for all aspects of patient care in inherited syndromes. Comprehensive, timely chapters present the fundamental principles of genetic counseling and testing, ethical issues, medical-legal issues, and clinical management principles. Chapters on inherited breast cancer, colon cancer, urologic malignancies, gynecologic malignancies, and MEN syndromes provide state-of-the-art information on hereditary risk identification, assessment and management, the role of the genetic counselor, providing optimal patient care, and the important research on the horizon - all written by an expert group of surgical and medical oncologists. "Inherited Cancer Syndromes: Current Clinical Management" is an important and timely book for surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, general surgeons, colorectal surgeons, trainees in surgery and oncology, and genetic counselors.
