A genetic assessment can help to determine the likelihood of an inherited predisposition to cancer and whether molecular testing for a specific cancer gene would be helpful. For those with an increased likelihood of an inherited predisposition, testing must begin with a living affected family member. Often we are able to reassure families that they are unlikely to be at increased risk for a cancer predisposition syndrome. For those families who are identified to have a mutation, surveillance recommendations have been published for known and possible carriers.
Holistic health is a concept in medical practice upholding that all aspects of people's needs, psychological, physical and social should be taken into account and seen as a whole. As defined above, the holistic view on treatment is widely accepted in medicine.A different definition, claiming that disease is a result of physical, emotional, spiritual, social and environmental imbalance, is used in alternative medicine.
