Well, I went to the doctor last week and he asked me all about my family health history but I told him I didn't know and he said that it could be important to my health now.
Ahh... yes, health history is important sweetheart.
So, why did you call this family meeting?
Yes, but unfortunately your uncle was a very heavy smoker which had a play in the matter as well.
Of course. So as you know my sons, your father and uncle, passed away from lung cancer, but he actually inherited it. Lung cancer is hereditary on my side of the family and so I am sad to say that I am at risk and you and your aunt are at risk as well.
Could you tell me about our family health history?
No problem sweety. We love you!
Ok, thank you so much Grams! I made another appointment for tomorrow afternoon I'll tell my doctor then. Thank you guys for coming!
Yeah we're here for you sissy!
Actually I did! So, yesterday I talked with my grandmother and she told me that lung cancer runs in my family. My dad and his brother both passed away from it.
So, did you learn anything about your family health history?
The next afternoon...
Lung cancer - hereditarydad and uncle died
Well, it sounds like this is hereditary to mainly the men in your so you should already have a lower risk of getting this cancer. However, if you would like to remain as healthy as you are, you have to avoid tobacco; do not smoke; exercise regularly, and eat or maintain a healthy eating diet.
Is there anyway that I could possibly reduce my risk of getting lung cancer?
Thank you for all of your help doctor, I will.
See you in a few months for another check-up!
If you think you can do those things, then I believe you can expect a healthy life ahead of you. However, always keep in mind that you do have a risk of getting lung cancer so be cautious
