I am 40 next year and will have to go for a check up mummy forst had breast cancer when she was 40

Aww Fairy :hug:Im sorry your so worried. Perhaps you can think ahead? get out in front of this ... can you not have the test for the gene? Then they can keep an eye on you or operate in advance.
🙏 your sis ok x

I'm 40 next year too and it's been playing on my mind. My grandmother had breast cancer, grandma on other side cervical cancer, my mom had throat cancer last year....I'm absolutely convinced I'll have it in some form. Hope your sister's check up turns out ok 💜

Hi fairy Lu,
Hope you and your sister will be okay, I hope you do decide to take the test.
The earlier the better treatment has improved.
We will be here to support you.
Sending strength and hugs.

Maybe it is not a good idea to worry about something that has not yet occurred, and may never occur. If you keep doing this, you will be perpetually in a state of anxiety. Anything can happen to any human being on any day. No one knows.

Hi Fairy Lu, I understand how you feel. My nan had ovarian cancer and both my mum and aunt had breast cancer. I'm 46. I'm convinced it's going to happen to me soon. It's a constant worry that's always in the back of my mind. I've got no family left now. I'm glad you've got Hermit. That's so special.
