My aunt (dad's sis) and grt-grandma (pat grandma's mom) both died of ovarian cancer. How likely is it hereditary? Would genetic testing be good idea?
Possibly: Two family members with ovarian cancer is not that common. There are a few inherited conditions that increase ovarian cancer risk. I would suggest that you gather all family info you can get hold of (all family with or without cancer) and visit with your gyn or family doc. They will decide of you need to be seen by a specialist in hereditary cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: but at 43 you would probably know about it already. Studies of the heredity of alcoholism would indicate that boys born of alcoholic fathers have about 4 times the prevalence of alcoholism by age 40 as those without alcoholic fathers (32% vs. 8%). However, the majority DON'T, and heredity does NOT define us. Limiting your drinking, abstinence and/or developing good coping skills important. ...Read more
Yes: and some doctors recommend that people with a strong history of alcoholism stay completely away from alcohol, as there is good evidence that it can be passed down, particularly to male offspring, while female offspring have a greater prevalence of depression. If you use alcohol, stick with safe limits (1 drink/day, no more than 7/week and never more than 3 on one occasion). ...Read more
Should i stop drinking - my dad and most of his family are alcoholics, could it be passed down to me?
Worth considering: I had a colleague in an addictions practice who routinely advised anyone with a strong family history of alcoholism not to begin consuming alcohol, and if they did, to strongly consider stopping. Genetics are not the only influence, and many people with + family histories never get into any trouble with alcohol, but they are at greater risk. ...Read more

Leakage on the : Lower left side and lower right side of the heart statement it's not correct. Are you talking about a valvular problem, a functional ventricular problem? But anyway, most of the heart diseases are not pass from father to son. One percent of babies have congenital heart disease that can be hereditary. Like autosomal dominant inheritance. A parent with the defect have 50% chance to pass the defect. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Autosomal dominant: About 60% of RLS is familial, meaning it runs in families, and the inheritance is believed to be autosomal dominant with variable penetrance, so the inheritance part is unpredictable. I think you should see a neurologist, get a diagnosis, and let the doctor decide what medication is best for you. You shouldn't use someone else's medication if you don't exactly know what you are treating. ...Read more
