A member asked:

My dad's biological father was jewish. i had a borderline malignant mucinous ovarian tumor removed in 4/2013 that was 10lbs. should i worry abt cancer?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Yes and no: Your cancer was of low grade yet it is not entirely worry free, as in some cases it does recur. Overall your cancer has very good prognosis in 80-90% of the cases. Your jewish heritage has no impact on this variety of ovarian cancer(it only affects the brca mutated type of cancers).
