Genetic cancer is a typical type of cancer that develops due to genetic mutation that passes from the parent to the child. Although inheriting the gene mutation is not a necessary indication of developing cancer, however, it definitely increases the risks of developing the condition by many times. Studies and researches have shown that that there are some genetic mutations that increase the possibilities of people developing some types of cancer, based on the family history and medical conditions. However, it should be remembered that cancer is not just a heredity disease, but can also develop in a person who has no medical history of cancer.
