Recent advances in molecular genetics have identified several genes associated with inherited susceptibility to cancer and have provided a means to begin identifying individuals and families with an increased risk of cancer. This rapid expansion of knowledge about cancer genetics has implications for all aspects of cancer management, including prevention, screening, and treatment. These guidelines specifically address hereditary breast/ovarian cancer syndrome (HBOC), Li-Fraumeni syndrome, and Cowden syndrome. These guidelines were developed understanding that much of our knowledge of how the rapidly emerging field of molecular genetics can be applied clinically is preliminary and that flexibility is needed when applying these guidelines to individual families.

This article summarizes what is known about the best practices of lung cancer screening and provides suggestions for the proper structure for institutions considering offering lung cancer screening services. Important points of emphasis include the need to confine screening to patients at highest risk, the presence of multidisciplinary teams capable of managing the high number of false-positive findings, the need for additional research on biomarkers and risk models for lung cancer, and the currently unknown cost-effectiveness of lung cancer screening on a societal level.
