Breast Cancer Gene

A strong family history of cancer is a good reason to get tested for the breast cancer gene. The presence of this gene increases your risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer by 3 to 7 times.

Lymphedema

Lymphedema can develop even years after surgery. Lymphedema may start out as minor swelling but can soon become debilitating. You don’t have to have had major surgery to develop lymphedema.
