    Anonymous: Some types of breast cancer have a familial/genetic component. If there is breast cancer in your maternal side, you should probably get tested for the particular gene. If you have it, you have a chance to look into the future and have prophylactic measures taken now. I had no history of breast cancer on either side of my family and still was diagnosed. Family history is just one piece of the puzzle of breast cancer. Take care, Sharon

    Women who have inherited the breast cancer genes BRCA1 or Brca2 can inherit from either parent, not just mother's side. A very small percentage of breast cancer is inherited tho'. There're is so much research being conducted for breast cancer, that scientists are discovering all sorts of new areas involved in the development of BC.

    Hello everyone i know that every day when I wake up God gives a smile and tells me: I'm giving you the chance to try again,I want to tell the world how i was able to conceive. After a history of painful, heavy periods and having had an ovary ,I was diagnosed with endometriosis. Because that my remaining Fallopian tube was blocked, the only chance I and my husband had of conceiving was through IVF. The condition meant that fertility treatment was very painful in spite of the treatment it wasn't successful . "From the age of 19 or 20, I had very bad periods, but my GP seemed uninterested. At 22, I had emergency surgery for appendicitis and awoke to discover I had also had an ovary removed, due to a large cyst. Although I had a histology (examination with a microscope of tissue removed during surgery), endometriosis (a condition in which endometrial cells, which normally line the uterus, implant around the outside of the uterus and/or ovaries, causing internal bleeding, pain and reduced fertility) was not diagnosed until much later. With all these challenges, the possibility of getting pregnant was very difficult...I read an article of how Iya Hindi, that helped a woman to conceive with the use of the herbal treatment...I contacted the address hindinative@yahoo.com ....I ordered for the herbs and it worked. I conceived through the use of the herbs as instructed also. Contact (hindinative@yahoo.com .Or whats App number+19145295224)you can also visit his website /http://nativehindi.com/ for help.
