Unlike protooncogenes, tumor suppressor genes require the loss of both alleles for tumor formation, a phenomenon summarized by the ‘‘two-hit’’ hypothesis, proposed by Knudson . In the Knudson hypothesis, hereditary cancers occur if a particular tumor suppressor gene inherited from one parent is defective (first ‘‘hit’’), and a subsequent non-inherited ‘‘hit’’ is acquired on the corresponding allelic pair, causing tumor formation. Thus, whilst not inevitable, tumor growth is highly likely in this patient population.
