Offering genetic testing only to those with a family history of cancer has led to current evidence on disease risk in carriers of cancer-causing variants being artificially inflated. This project will use large genetic datasets to compare effects of rare cancer-causing variants across groups based on variables such as age, sex, screening and family history in a general population setting. This work will help to inform clinicians how to counsel patients.
