Hello,
I wanted to know if cancer can be hereditary please?
My mother passed away last month and she has also two sisters one who passed away too but the other is also suffering from a cancer. Am I at risk from this illness too please?

Hello
There are cancers that can be hereditary, for example breast cancer, ovarian cancer or bowel cancer. Do not worry about this because there is nothing to say definately that you are high risk. Take care and good luck to you.
