FIRST PRIZE Winner in the Oncology category of the 2010 BMA Medical Book Competition. Intensive research over the last fifteen years has yielded a vast expansion in our understanding of the role of inheritance and genetics in a variety of cancers. Several inherited conditions have been identified which result in a high risk of various cancers; some of these were previously recognized, but the genetic basis underlying them has now been elucidated. This knowledge is now entering the sphere of routine clinical care. Surgeons, gastroenterologists, gynaecologists, oncologists, endocrinologists and many others need an awareness of these disorders, an understanding of genetic testing and when it is indicated, and how to manage patients with inherited cancer predisposition and their families. This book covers the basic concepts of cancer genetics. The common inherited cancer syndromes are each dealt with in greater depth, with the current management outlined. This book is aimed at all clinicians who may encounter these conditions in their practice. It aims to facilitate identification of high-risk individuals and families, to inform interaction with geneticists and other subspecialists, to provide a basis for patient management and to stimulate interest in these fascinating conditions.

Renal cell carcinoma represents a heterogeneous group of tumors, the most common of which is clear cell adenocarcinoma. The annual incidence of this tumor appears to be rising and approximately 12,000 individuals die from this cancer annually in the United States. One third of patients who present have metastatic disease at the time of diagnosis, and another 40% who undergo nephrectomy will ultimately develop this complication. Over the past 10 years, a significant amount of new information concerning the epidemiology, mole- lar and immunologic characteristics, and therapy for patients with these tumors has appeared. The recognition that inherited forms of renal cancer exist, and that chromosomal abn- malities can be identified in these tumors, suggested a genetic basis for renal cell carcinoma. The familial cancer syndrome, Von Hippel Lindau disease, provided the setting in which the genetic abnormalites associated with the development of renal cancer were first described. Abnormalities of the VHL gene have also been detected in sporadic clear cell carcinoma, and it has now been recognized that approximately 80 % of these tumors will demonstrate ch- acteristic alterations. Currently the functions of the VHL protein are being investigated, and the biology of clear cell carcinoma of the kidney is under study. Additionally, papillary carcinomas of the kidney appear to express different molecular defects, and these are now being unraveled.

The genomic era has allowed enormous strides in our understanding of the molecular changes that underlie malignant transformation. Mutations have been discovered that are critical drivers of large cross-sections of human cancers. These discoveries have allowed us to find drugs that target these drivers and make important strides in treatment. Genomics and high-throughput technologies have illuminated the complexity of cancer and the facility with which cancers adapt during their natural history. The field is evolving rapidly with new discoveries and new drugs reported monthly. This book is a timely foundation for understanding in context the origins of molecular oncology and its future directions. The content reviews available technologies for the analysis of cancer tissues and genes; summaries of key oncogenic pathways from a molecular perspective; the technologies, pathways and targeted therapies of a wide range of human malignancies; and new pharmacologic therapies that have a common mechanistic target.

Psychological Aspects of Cancer: A Guide to Emotional and Psychological Consequences of Cancer, Their Causes and Their Management opens with two essays on the biological basis of emotion/mental-driven body processes and disease. The consequence of such considerations is that since thoughts and emotions can be modulated and changed by health care professionals, psychological counseling should be seen not only as a way to help patients cope, but possibly to influence the disease itself. A unique overview of a key area of cancer care, this important title then proceeds to offer a section on genetic predispositions to cancer and the psychological considerations involved in screening and pre-emptive therapies and decision-making in cancer therapy. A third section deals with the philosophical and religious underpinnings of psychological factors involved in coping with disease state stressors and the roles of hope in coping. The fourth section is an acknowledgement that patients with cancer live in a social context, which often includes a partner and/or caregiver. The fifth section includes several essays on aspects and modalities of care-giving that are designed to help patients coping with their cancer and its aftermath, which increasingly extends for years. An important title covering key aspects of one of the most troubling disorders of our time, Psychological Aspects of Cancer: A Guide to Emotional and Psychological Consequences of Cancer, Their Causes and Their Management will provide the busy practitioner with cutting edge knowledge as well as practical information that can translate into better care for patients with cancer.
