Take a look at these 5 highly hereditary cancers and see if you belong to the “dangerous” group!
1. Colorectal cancer
In fact, the family history of intestinal polyps has increased dramatically in the past few years. Among them, the proportion of patients suffering from colorectal cancer is even higher. Worryingly, in families with a history of colorectal cancer, the chance of transmitting it to children is as high as 20-30%. Therefore, once it is discovered that the family member has the disease, it is best to take the initiative to seek medical treatment regularly to prevent it first.
2. Gastric cancer
Stomach cancer is a disease related to daily eating habits. The familial subtype is also obvious, and the disease is highly hereditary. If one person in the family has the disease, then at least 1-2 people in the family are at risk of spreading the disease. Especially this disease is getting younger and younger, so it is best to take the initiative to carry out regular screening.
3. Liver Cancer
About 80% of liver cancer patients have a history of hepatitis and cirrhosis. At the same time, hepatitis B is highly contagious and can be transmitted from close relatives. Therefore, if someone in the family suffers from liver disease, it is best to actively screen for the early risk of the disease.
4. Nasopharyngeal cancer
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma has a tendency of family metastasis. The main cause of disease today is Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). The best way to deal with this hereditary cancer is to have regular health checks and establish a healthy diet and lifestyle to prevent early disease.
5. Breast cancer
Breast cancer has been clinically proven to be hereditary, especially from close relatives. If your mother has breast cancer, her risk of transmitting cancer to her daughter is 2-3 times that of the general population. Therefore, breast examinations should be performed regularly, especially after the age of 35, and more attention should be paid to the health of “Shuangshan”.
