If you keep gulping down car fumes it is a mathematical certainty that you will all get it.

yes only when 3 people are together wil one get cancer, so you go to stick with 2 or 4+

it could skip generations so thats not a not sure answer even the doctor will tell you that but the best thing to do is make sure you get tested since it runs in the family

good luck:)

no. that number is based off of the percentage of the population that ends up developing cancer. Some ethnic groups have higher or lower rates of cancer. Also, if multiple members of your extended family develop cancer, you may be at a higher risk. If you are a healthy, non-smoker, in one of the ethnic groups with low cancer rates, you and your whole family may be cancer free.

On in three women and one in two men will develop cancer over a lifetime of around 80 years. Most people diagnosed with cancer are over 60.

I know you mean this as a joke - but get the statistics right.

I think this statistic is for cancer cases, not just cancer patients. That means that if one person has two types of cancer they would be counted as two cancer cases which would raise the statistics count. Basically, in a family of 6 a person developed stomach cancer and lung cancer, they would cover the 1 in 3 statistic for the 6 people in their family, thus sparing the other family members. I am of course basing that on the thinking that 1 person in a group of 3 is guaranteed to have cancer (or 2 out of 6).
