After being diagnosed with breast cancer aged 39, I now find myself newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer aged 49 which is a bit of a shock to say the least!
Very little family history of these types of cancer, but I have heard from medical professionals that I am at a higher risk of getting ovarian cancer with my history of breast cancer at such a young age, but I was never told this before now.
Just back at home recovering from a failed hysterectomy I am now facing 6 X cycles of chemotherapy and then more surgery. Feel so sorry for my poor hubby having to through my cancer treatment the first time was bad enough, but his support has been wonderful yet again.
Not looking forward to chemotherapy again, but at least I know what to expect, and it worked last time.
Is anyone else aware of the breast cancer link, and/or been made aware of it, or is this a recent development?
