    There are 13 million people with cancer in the United States, and its estimated that about 1.3 millionof these cases are hereditary. Yet despite advanced training in cancer genetics and years ofpracticing medicine, Dr. Theo Ross was never certain whether the history of cancers in her familywas simple bad luck or a sign that they were carriers of a cancer-causing genetic mutation. Then shewas diagnosed with melanoma, and for someone with a dark complexion, melanoma made no sense.It turned out there was a genetic factor at work.
