Abstract:

Practically focusing on the needs of the medical oncologist, obstetrician, and gynecologist, this source analyzes the epidemiological, biological, and clinical issues associated with hereditary breast cancer, and offers clear guidance on the application and utilization of cancer risk assessment models, screening options for individuals with HBS, and the identification of high-risk patients. Addressing every essential aspect of HBC, this source offers succinct analyses of HBC-associated syndromes, low penetrance genes, and mutations of the BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 genes.
