Dad has had prostate cancer, with bladder stones and kidney stones for those mid-section of the body type of issues.
Lately he dealt with thyroid cancer and just last week had surgery to get rid of another bladder stone. So even above the waist caused problems below the waist.
I myself have had adenomyosis (with hysterectomy, kept ovaries), endo and now an ovarian cyst issue.
Do his problems pose concerns for me? I know prostate issues can pass on down to my son. Oh yes, his three brothers have prostate problems too. I think Grammy on Dad's side had ovarian cancer, but Mom says no, it was uterine cancer. I know Grammy was in her late 60's whatever it was, and she lived to be in her 80's. Time blurs the details but the basic idea was that she was "okay".
Hi Suzanne, my dad had prostate cancer too. I have asked docs about a connection between that and ovarian cancer in daughters and the answers I have gotten so far is "no known connection". Has anyone else heard differently?
