Your understanding of the condition and your doctor's assessment are an essentially component to your management. They are doing the right thing but not talking to you enough. ...Read more

Is it true that hereditary breast cancer is more likely to come back than non hereditary?

Is it true that hereditary breast cancer is more likely to come back than non hereditary?

Breast cancer: Unfortunately yes. Many cancers arise from single cells that become cancerous through a series of unfortunate mutations. Hereditary breast cancers arise from cells that all started with a slight change which predisposed all of those cells to cancer. So there's a higher chance of second primary cancer. As far as recurrence itself, that depends on a lot of factors involved in the type and staging. ...Read more
