By Prof. Dr. M. Ponz de Leon (auth.)

For a long time the etiology of human tumors has virtually solely been attributed to environmental elements, which concerned not just within the induction of neo­ plasms but additionally in different levels of tumorigenesis. Cigarette smoking and alcohol are the 2 top recognized examples of things with regards to our smooth way of life that have been implicated within the improvement of melanoma of varied organs. From the Nineteen Sixties onward, the pioneer paintings of some investigators sincerely confirmed that hereditary components weren't merely with regards to infrequent neoplasms, yet may be respon­ sible for the prevalence of a mammoth fraction of tumors that don't often exhibit good points of inheritance (as relating to breast or colorectal cancer). hence, the concept a few universal human malignancies should be transmitted from one new release to a different with beneficial properties of mendelian gene­ tics turned a growing number of obtrusive. additionally, the verit­ capable explosion of molecular biology within the final 15 years has made one other and massive contribution to the rising function of genetics in biomedical study and especially in cancer.

Familial and Hereditary Tumors

For a few years the etiology of human tumors has nearly completely been attributed to environmental elements, which looked to be concerned not just within the induction of neo­ plasms but in addition in different levels of tumorigenesis.
