Hello there, so glad I just found this site as I have been suffering much alone. Survived surgery and brachiotherapy physically, however, has taken it's toll emotionally, financially, vocationally, etc. Now, after losing job during medical leave, can not proceed with required check ups for recurrance.
My question is - does anyone know anything about DNA and their markers that contribute to cancer? My concern is that my father had serious cancer and passed away over 30 years ago at the age of 60. I was always my fathers genetic twin (except for the gender) we were exactly alike.
Strangely, I am 56 and desperately thinking that my fate shall be the same as his through no fault of my own, but genetics. I see no other causual factors, as I have been careful with my health all my life, active and a vegetarian since age 14.
Does anyone have a similar idea about genetics?
