Ok this one will throw you.... not all familial breast cancer is inherited. In fact, inherited genetic mutations may contribute to only 5% to 10% of all breast cancers....which leaves 90% wondering why the heck we got it!!..If you are in the 5 to l0% with those mutations that they can screen for you're probably going to get it early. I did read that a mutation of the P53 gene may contribute and thats a factor also in bladder cancer....????????? Many questions..no answers..

My brother is fighting bladder cancer now for three years. I was DX in January of this year with BC. My doctors all say there is no relation and are not even interested in know the type of BC he has.

I can not help but believe there is a relationship. Also my grandson is seeing a urologists this week due to blood in his urine. He has no pain or infection--just blood.

Had an uncle with it from my Mom's side. I do believe there is at least a tendency for causation. Sad thing is no on is studying this issue according to my URO.

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.
