As per the available reports about 31 Journals,12 Conferences,223 National Symposiums and 174 Open access articles which are exclusively dedicated to genetic oncology. Cancer is a genetic disorder in which the normal control of cell growth is lost. Cancer genetics is now one of the fastest expanding medical specialties.
Cancer is a genetic disease caused by the progressive accumulation of mutations in critical genes that control cell growth and differentiation. Completion of the Human Genome Project promises to revolutionize the practice of Medicine, especially Oncology care. The tremendous gains in the knowledge of the structure and function of human genes will surely impact the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of cancer. Moreover, it will lead to more effective cancer control through the use of genetics to quantify individual cancer risks. This article reviews the current status of genetic testing and counseling for cancer risk assessment and will suggest a framework for integrating such counseling into oncology practice.
At the molecular level, cancer is caused by mutations in DNA, which result in aberrant cell proliferation. Most of these mutations are acquired and occur in somatic cells. However, some people inherit mutations in the germline. The mutations occur in two classes of cellular genes: oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes.Transformation of proto-oncogene to oncogene is the result of gain in function through: Over-expression of the gene, or duplication (such as amplification) to produce increased onco-protein Activation or formation of fusion gene by translocation Alteration of the gene product to produce transforming proteins.

The genetic testing market is growing rapidly. In 2011, the US genetic and genomic clinical testing market size was estimated to be $5.9 billion. Given the potential role of genetics in guiding treatment and health behaviors, the economic impact of related care pathways is estimated to be substantially larger. The number of available tests has grown substantially, from 1,680 just 4 years ago, to 2,886 in 2012. However, this 72-percent increase in the number of tests available has been slow to translate into clinical applications. Though the current clinical applications are still somewhat limited, demand from physicians and patients for testing is growing. A recent UnitedHealth survey found that three quarters of its network contracted physicians believe that some patients in their practice would benefit from genetic testing.
