Written by international experts from Europe and North America, it 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. In this rapidly advancing field, this book provides an unrivalled source of information, including sections on ethical and insurance issues and the different cultural aspects of breast cancer. The use of recently devised cancer genetics clinics and different referral criteria and patterns to these clinics are also detailed. This book will be of value to all clinical geneticists, oncologists and healthcare professionals involved in screening and counselling programmes."--Jacket." ;
