Am I more prone to cancer
My father's aunts all died of cancer at different ages. My grandmother's, both paternal and maternal battled benign and malignant cancers respectively. My brother died of cancer. Half my aunts have battled some form of cancer at some point. Am I more prone to getting it? I am vegetarian, don't smoke and exercise three times a week. I'm healthy in all other aspects.
