Identification of a familial mutation may lead to the identification of many relatives at risk
Identification of a familial mutation may lead to the identification of many relatives at risk


Hereditary cancers
Hereditary Cancers identification of many relatives at risk

  • How to spot an inherited cancer

  • What to do about it

    • Surveillance

    • Referral pathways


Family history is the key
Family history is the key identification of many relatives at risk

  • 3 generation pedigree

  • All cancers noted

  • Ages at diagnosis


Features of hereditary cancer
Features of Hereditary Cancer identification of many relatives at risk

  • More cancer than expected in the family

  • Types of cancer are consistent, or fit a known hereditary cancer pattern

  • Early age of onset (<55 with Fhx or very young with no Fhx)

  • Multiple primary tumours in an individual

  • Presence of unusual cancers or other features – eg. Skin lesions, CHRPES

Colon - 56yrs

Colon - 50 yrs


Endometrial - 50yrs identification of many relatives at risk

Urinary tract - 60yrs

Colon - 56yrs

Endometrial - 60yrs

Ovarian - 45yrs

Colon - 50 yrs


Lynch syndrome hereditary non polyposis colorectal cancer hnpcc
Lynch syndrome identification of many relatives at risk(Hereditary Non-Polyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC) )

Increased risk for:

  • Colon cancer ~ up to an 80% lifetime risk

  • Endometrial cancer ~30-60% lifetime risk

  • Ovarian cancer ~ 10% lifetime risk

  • Other cancers e.g. gastric, hepatobiliary, kidney, urinary tract, small bowel cancer

  • Sebaceous adenomas


Familial adenomatous polyposis fap
Familial Adenomatous Polyposis identification of many relatives at risk (FAP)

  • Adenomatous polyps in colon and rectum

  • Colorectal cancer, usually by age 40

  • Increased chance for some other malignancies:

    • duodenum, stomach, brain, papillary thyroid cancer in young women, ?hepatoblastoma in young children


Criteria
Criteria: identification of many relatives at risk

  • Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is diagnosed clinically in an individual with:

  • Greater than 100 colorectal adenomatous polyps OR

  • Fewer than 100 adenomatous polyps AND a relative with FAP


Adenomatous Polyps in Colon identification of many relatives at risk

Other features
Other Features identification of many relatives at risk

  • Benign desmoid tumors

  • Dental anomalies

  • Epidermoid cysts (esp. scalp)

  • Retinal lesions (CHRPE)

  • Osteomas of the mandible

  • Variable presentation, even within the same family

Moderate risk 3-6 times population risk. Peutz-Jegher syndrome. May be subtle and fade with age


Surveillance for moderate risk group
Surveillance for moderate risk group Peutz-Jegher syndrome. May be subtle and fade with age

  • Surveillance – 5 yearly, from 50 (or 10 years before youngest diagnosis)

  • Unlikely to be available through the public system

  • Available through private system

  • Other alternatives may be more accessible:

    • Faecal occult blood (evidence for popn risk)

    • CT colonography


Who should be referred for assessment of family history
Who should be referred for assessment of family history Peutz-Jegher syndrome. May be subtle and fade with age?

  • Known cancer syndrome in the family

  • Fit “high risk criteria”

  • Problematic “moderate risk”


Where to refer
Where to refer? Peutz-Jegher syndrome. May be subtle and fade with age

  • Genetic services

  • NZ familial GI registry

Nz familial gi cancer registry
NZ Familial GI Cancer Registry Peutz-Jegher syndrome. May be subtle and fade with age

  • Provide assessment for familial gastrointestinal cancer syndromes

  • Facilitate ongoing surveillance for at-risk family members

  • Gatekeepers for colonoscopy

  • Funding recently extended to allow a national service


Registry locations
Registry locations Peutz-Jegher syndrome. May be subtle and fade with age

  • Auckland hospital

  • Christchurch hospital

  • Proposed Wellington site by 2011 - 2012


Registry pathway
Registry pathway: Peutz-Jegher syndrome. May be subtle and fade with age

  • Refer families for assessment by the registry

  • All cancers confirmed where possible (30% concordance between family history given to GP, and confirmed history)

  • Surveillance guidelines provided based on family history. High risk families enrolled in registry for ongoing management.


  • Families identified as having a likely familial cancer syndrome are referred to genetic services.

  • Genetic services offer genetic testing.

  • Outcome shared with registry who establish appropriate management

  • Genetic services meet with extended family for predictive testing of identified mutations


Genetic testing limitations
Genetic Testing Limitations syndrome are referred to genetic services.

  • Mutations detected in minority of families

  • Requires blood from living affected relative

  • Lengthy and expensive process

  • Predictive test gives no information on if, when or what type of cancer an individual will develop

  • Sporadic cancer occurs within cancer syndrome families.


Conclusion
Conclusion syndrome are referred to genetic services.

  • Family history is the key

  • If looks familial refer to genetic services or Familial GI registry

  • In terminal patients store DNA if there is any chance it is familial (EDTA 20mls)

  • Ring if you have any queriesor not sure whether to refer or not.


Toll-free syndrome are referred to genetic services.
