Negative Nancy here again

My sister-in-law passed away today. She had bone cancer the last few yrs. We weren’t expecting her to go so soon. Just last week she was talking about some new medical procedures they were trying for new symptoms. Her husband says it was without struggle, she simple stopped breathing. I suppose that is some comfort.

My dad was officially diagnosed with cancer, the same type my grandfather is dying from. They’re doing more tests to see where else it could be besides the lungs and bronchial tubes.

I’m accepting that cancer is everywhere. How do I protect myself? Should I get genetic testing to see if I’m at risk? What would you do?
