Clinical cancer genetics has now matured to a truly multidisciplinary medical discipline in which clinical and molecular geneticists work with clinical and medical oncologists as well as with psycho-social workers.

Due to the multidisciplinary nature of clinical cancer genetics most papers are currently being published in a wide variety of journals on epidemiology, oncology and genetics. 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, counseling and the health economics of familial cancer.

Familial Cancer publishes Original Articles, Reviews, Short Communications, Book Reviews, and Letters to the Editor.

  • Encompasses all aspects of hereditary cancer of interest to the clinician, geneticist, psychosocial worker, surgical and medical oncologist
