ABSTRACT: A hereditary cancer syndrome is a genetic predisposition to certain types of cancer, often with onset at an early age, caused by inherited pathogenic variants in one or more genes. Most hereditary cancer syndromes exhibit autosomal dominant inheritance.

The most common hereditary cancer syndromes related to women’s cancer include hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. "The discussions on genetic counselling and psychological issues are interesting and relevant. The discussion of the basic genetics of inherited cancer provides a useful introduction for someone new to the field." (Human Genetics, June ).

The best and most recognized experts in the field have contributed to this project, guaranteeing updated information, accuracy and the discussion of topical issues.

Though we have not identified genetic causes for all types of cancer, we do know several gene changes, or mutatations, that can be passed down from parent to child and increase a person's risk of developing the disease.

These changes are known as hereditary cancer syndromes. They include Lynch syndrome and familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). BRCA1 and BRCA2 were discovered in andrespectively, in research families selected for their high prevalence of breast and ovarian cancers.

1,2 These genes remain the primary inherited causes of breast and ovarian cancer, accounting for 30% to 70% of hereditary breast cancer families and approximately 90% of hereditary ovarian cancer by: 2. Genetic Changes and Cancer. Cancer is a genetic disease—that is, cancer is caused by certain changes to genes that control the way our cells function, especially how they grow and divide.

Genes carry the instructions to make proteins, which do much of the work in our cells. Hereditary diffuse gastric cancer (HDGC) is an autosomal dominant susceptibility for diffuse gastric cancer, a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma that infiltrates into the stomach wall causing thickening of the wall (linitis plastica) without forming a distinct mass.
