My family has a strong history of cancer
. Grandmother with breast cancer
at 94, mother with colon cancer
at age 73, uncle lung cancer, uncle stomach cancer, aunt with colon cancer, great aunt leukemia. These are all on maternal side. Brother now with prostate cancer at age 55 and me with stage 1b clear cell ovarian cancer at age 55 (no sign of disease now).
I realize with older people and cancer, the docs have always told me, well they were just old enough.
