Oncological diseases in the family

Hereditary predisposition for oncological diseases is quite rare. We are alerted to possible presence of hereditary predisposition in the family when several blood relations suffer form the same type of cancer or when the disease manifests itself at an age much younger that is common in the population. In some of these cases (mainly bowel and breast cancer) we can establish a risk of the disease by DNA testing. If a high risk is found a more intensive scheme of preventive investigations is advisable with earlier detection of the disease which improves prognosis, or in some cases preventive surgery is possible.
