This publication surveys the profound and far-reaching ramifications that have arisen from the very significant advances in our understanding of the genetic basis of familial breast and ovarian cancer. Written by international experts from Europe and North America, this book provides the busy clinician with a contemporary and wide-ranging guide to the latest developments in the diagnosis, genetics, screening, prevention and management of familial breast cancer. This area has advanced in knowledge so rapidly that this publication provides an unrivalled source of information including sections on ethical and insurance issues and the different cultural differences in breast cancer. The use of recently devised cancer genetics clinics and different referral criteria and patterns to these clinics are detailed. The volume will be of immense value to all clinical geneticists, oncologists, and healthcare professionals involved in screening and counselling programmes.
