Almost zero: I'm generally hesitant to use the words "always" or "never" in medicine as nature usually finds exceptions to every rule. But I would say the chance is close to zero as cervical cancer is generally related to specific strains of HPV spread sexually. I do know of one case reported in the literature. However, I'd say you have a better chance of winning the powerball or being struck by lightning. ...Read more
Increased: The risk solely from a 1st degree relative is about 2.5-4x's.

Breast MRI is recommended for breast cancer screening in women who have received mediastinal radiation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
