Description - Risk Assessment and Management in Cancer Genetics by Fiona Lalloo
The need to expand expertise in cancer genetics beyond highly specialized genetics clinics is increasingly being recognized. In response, this practical book provides oncologists, specialist nurses, genetic counsellors, family doctors, and geneticists with comprehensive and easy-to-use guidelines on risk assessment and appropriate management. The book focuses on common familial cancers such as breast, colorectal, ovary, prostate and melanoma, and separate chapters cover cancer predisposing syndromes such as neurofibromatosis, familial adenomatous polyposis and their management.
