My friend has a twin sister who has a melanoma, and must have it removed. She has already been treated successfully for ?Hodgkins disease.They're 77. This sister's daughter has also just died of liver cancer - very sad.
My friend is very sensitive about cancer, understandably, and has asked me to do some research into her likelihood of developing cancer. She doesn't like using the 'puter.
I found some recent research which is worrying:
It seems that skin cancer is one type with a very high risk of both twins developing it.
My question is, should I show my friend the report, or tell her about it, or just play it down? Maybe she will forget to ask me, then what should I do?
She's in good health for her age, but maybe advisable for her to see a skin specialist regularly? Obviously that would be up to her doctor.
