I was diagnosed with breast cancer about a week go.
I’m not posting to get sympathy just want it known that breast cancer, ovarian, prostate, and pancreatic cancer is known to be caused by a genetic mutated gene. I’ve seen all the promotions of breast cancer but never thought I would have it because no one that I know of in my family has had breast cancer. I realized that I didn’t know anything really about it.
I just want everyone to know and be aware of family cancer history and what that can mean. I don’t know yet if mine is genetic but sent the test out so I can inform my family. Hopefully I will know soon. My cancer is grade 3. Very fast growing. Luckily it was found early enough to have a good chance of killing it.
So please be aware of family history.
