    No close relatives with breast cancer, but I think my grandfather's sister had it. I had my first mammogram this summer, just to be safe... also, breastfeeding is supposed to be protective against the disease, so I should be covered there.

    .. oh i already posted on this thread. My bad.

    Soy milk is a good way to prevent prostate cancer.

    So pancreatic cancer can't be cured with cannabis?

    I don't know, it hasn't been tried much, since it's a rare cancer form to begin with.

    My mother had breast cancer. It went away for 16 years then came back, it was in her bones. But good news yesterday the tumor is not growing anymore. So, she might have 15 years to live instead of 2 like originally predicted.

    My paternal grandfather was diagnosed with prostate cancer a few months ago. It seems promising though, so we all hope for the best.
    You don't have this mentioned here, but one of my great grandmothers died from an ovary cancer.
    I personally don't have any elevated risks for any of this according to 23andme.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I got my first official state invitation to do screening for cervical cancer (25years old)
    It comes from the government and it's for free, but I already had it done a couple of months before during a generanl gyno check-up.

    My family dont have a history of cancer, more heart problems. But my grandfather did pass away from lung cancer, but i believe he contracted it through his work back in the 40's down in Kuwait where it involved loads of chemical stuff.

    Anyway, I can say that while I have never had any prostate issues, I have been for a prostate check at the fresh age of 20 for other minor issues....Lets just say the experience changed me so much that I have now decided I would rather fork out £150 for a blood examination of the prostate instead of the finger going up there.Not going down that route again.

    I had a relative who died from leukemia.

    A grandfather and at least one uncle had prostate cancer. Both are fine now.
