Can we find the cause of a patient’s cancer? Is it possible to provide targeted treatment to prevent future cancers by understanding what genetic predispositions a patient or their family members have? In a recently published study, nearly one in six to one in eight cancer patients, depending on which type of cancer they had, carried a genetic predisposition to the development of their cancer. How can we translate these findings into our practice for the benefit of our patients and their families? Tune in to episode four of our Genes & Your Health Edition from the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine.
