Pancreatic cancer risk
My mother has been diagnosed with Sarcomatoid pancreatic carcinoma stage 4 last August. Two of her maternal aunts were also been attacked by cancer, one with breast cancer and another with cervical cancer previously. I am a single child. Do I have any risk of getting Pancreatic Cancer or any such cancer? If yes how to screen myself ?
