Cancer Frequency Variations Among and Within Families

  • Henry T. Lynch (a1), Anne J. Krush (a1) and Arnold R. Kaplan (a1)

Summary

Comprehension of etiologic factors in cancer requires precise recording of tumor histology, genealogy, medical history, and potential environmental carcinogens. With this approach and in a prospective and retrospective survey, two cancer-prone and two cancer-resistant families are described. Genetic factors, in cancer predisposition and in cancer resistance are hypothesized.
