Currently, there is a critical need for gynecologic oncologists, medical oncologists, obstetricians, and gynecologists to integrate meaningful cancer screening and a prevention strategy into daily clinical practice. It is particularly necessary for physicians with patients who are predisposed to hereditary gynecologic cancer (HGC). Clinicians are increasingly confronted with serious issues, such as attempting to knowledgeably apply growing insights of the biology and genetics of cancer, effectively identify high-risk patients, and utilize screening and prevention techniques in their practice.
Hereditary Gynecologic Cancer is a clinician-focused reference addressing the epidemiologic, biological, and clinical issues associated with HGC. Containing an overview of hereditary gynecological cancers, as well as in-depth information about Hereditary Breast Ovarian Cancer Syndrome, Lynch, and other syndromes with gynecologic cancer components, this is a one-stop source for all clinicians that treat patients at risk for developing these diseases.
