SLGMC Webinar: Inherited Cancer Susceptibility
June 20 2018 @ 5:15 pm - 5:45 pm
The third webinar of the South London GMC Education and Training Programme webinar series.
The majority of cancers are sporadic with no significant risk implications for a patients future cancer risk or the cancer risk of their relatives. However, recognising families with genetic susceptibility to cancer through either multifactorial inheritance or high risk single gene disorders can enable screening, prevention and early detection (SPED) interventions. SPED interventions aim to reduce both health and economic cancer burden across populations. In this webinar, Dr Hanson and Dr Snape will use common exemplars of breast and colorectal cancer to discuss how to assess if a person and/or their relatives have an increased lifetime risk of developing cancer, and the different SPED pathways available in familial cancer caused by both multifactorial inheritance and single high risk cancer predisposition genes.
