Summary
Genetic testing and counseling for cancer have made great strides in recent years. The popular demand for advanced screening, advances in testing, and the response of insurance companies and corporations have all served to shape this important area of cancer risk management. This practical, user-friendly guidebook allows you to search by disease site for the hereditary cancer syndromes relevant to your patient's cancer. This handy resource will help you formulate questions when expanding that patient's personal and family history, identify the genes that are most relevant, determine whether to refer that patient for genetic counseling and testing, and guide the patient{u2019}s long-term management based on the patient{u2019}s mutation-positive or {u2013}negative status. The guidebook will be of equal value to the practicing oncologist, surgeon, urologist, endocrinologist, gynecologist, primary care physician, physician's assistant, advanced practice nurse, and any other clinician counseling a patient who has had cancer. Informative overview summarizes the history and current state of genetic cancer testing. Site-specific chapters help you locate essential facts quickly. Expert contributors share their years of experience in genetic testing and counseling. Timely insights address key medical, ethical, legal, and financial implications of genetic cancer testing
