This is very significant and I urge you to get tested.
Research points to a clear relationship between Vitamin D and cancer, including recurrance and survival.
You should make sure your level is clearly above 30 ng/ml, at a minimum. Consensus among researchers suggest being 40 to 60 ng/l
one scientific presentation here:
as an add on, breast cancer survivor Carole Baggerly, started a non-profit to ge the word out about the link between Vitamin D and cancer and to facilitate more research.

I must emphasis that my wife's oncologist never ordered a vitamin D test. I requested her test be done and found it was low, just above 20, and we ive in Florida. I did not at the time (early 2012) know that it takes many weeks to get serum level up if one uses only 1,000 to 2,000 IU a day, which will raise D an avergae of 10 to 20 ng/ml. but each pperson is different, so please get tested and review the research.
