People with FAP usually develop multiple (hundreds to thousands) small growths, called polyps, which carpet the polyps are adenomatous, which means they are immediate precursors to colon cancer. The NCCN Genetic/Familial High-Risk Assessment: Breast and Ovarian Cancer Guidelines (v) recommend genetic testing for all men with metastatic prostate cancer and for men with prostate cancer with a Gleason score seven or higher and (1) one close relative with ovarian, pancreatic, metastatic prostate, or early-onset breast cancer (younger Cited by: 2.

Familial Cancer provides a forum bringing these topics together, focusing on the interests and needs of the clinician. The journal concentrates on clinical cancer genetics. Most major areas in the field are included, such as epidemiology of familial cancer, molecular analysis and diagnosis, clinical expression, treatment and prevention.

familial cancer listen (fuh-MIH-lee-ul KAN-ser) Cancer that occurs in families more often than would be expected by chance. These cancers often occur at an early age, and may indicate the presence of a gene mutation that increases the risk of cancer.
