No: Your BMI is normal. What stage/grade was your uterine cancer? Is there a family history of breast/ovarian cancer? Your surgeon may be able to provide you with information regarding these risks, may be able to order cancer genetics screening tests if indicated, or may be able to refer you to a cancer genetics counselor should you choose to do so. Best Wishes
