Public health assessment of genetic predisposition to cancer
This chapter focuses on cancer prevention and control. Topics discussed include genetic polymorphisms and cancer susceptibility, breast and ovarian cancer susceptibility genes, colorectal cancer susceptibility genes, lung cancer genetic susceptibility, prostate cancer genetic susceptibility, and melanoma genetic susceptibility. Studies of genetic susceptibility to common cancers highlight the need for additional population-based molecular epidemiologic research to define better the contribution of genetic factors to cancer, and to examine interactions with environmental factors amenable to preventive interventions.
