In recent years, the genetic aspects of cancer have become important for everyday practice in many fields of medicine. Recognition of the hereditary nature of 'common' cancers in certain families: has shifted the paradigm from 'hereditary cancer is extremely rare' to 'any cancer case might be genetic'. Gynecologists, therefore, increasingly need to master a number of basic skills and notions from clinical genetics: not only in order to adequately appreciate family histories and genetic test results, but also to cope with their far-reaching consequences.
