How will cancer affect pregnancy & giving birth.
Hi there! I'd like to share to all of you one of my concerns regarding pregnancy.
My grandmother, Dad's mother, died of breast cancer even before I was born. They say cancer cells are transferred from one generation to another. And some people even say that if the hereditary disease or illness does not appear on the generation that follows, it has a greater possibility that it will on the succeeding generations. And since nobody has acquired the disease yet as of the moment, I was thinking maybe it is possible someone in my generation or my kids will get it. Is it true?
And my follow-up question is, if you happen to get pregnant while you have cancer, will it affect your baby's physical characteristics and are there any risks of having miscarriage or complications?
