A comprehensive review of current and future opportunities for prevention, including both genetic family studies and population screening, is followed by sections covering the basic principles of genetic counselling and opportunities, within the context of obstetric care, for prenatal diagnosis using ultrasound scanning and DNA technology.

With continued progress in mapping and sequencing of the human genome, and increasing recognition of the role of genes in disease etiology, there is a need for a more sophisticated approach to the investigation of the causes of complex chronic diseases.

This text integrates the principles, methods and approaches of epidemiology and genetics in the study of disease etiology. Briefly, genomic medicine is the use of information from the genome to guide clinical decision making. Personalized medicine is a more broad concept that refers to a model of health care emphasizing the use of each individual’s unique clinical, genetic, genomic, and environmental information for disease prevention and treatment.

Genetic disorders are the consequence of mutational events in the past, including the remote and the immediate past, and prevention, in its true sense, can only be applied to preventing further mutations.

Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. These contrast with benign tumors, which do not spread. Possible signs and symptoms include a lump, abnormal bleeding, prolonged cough, unexplained weight loss, and a change in bowel movements.

While these symptoms may indicate cancer, they can also have other sis: Average five year survival 66% (USA).
