Lyme disease/Tick-borne disease and BC
Just wondering if there are more of us out there. I had 0.7% 5-year risk for breast cancer, no family history at all. I know things happen, but I wonder if the fact I have had low-grade inflammation and poor immune status the last 8 years helped the cancer take hold.
I am 45, and I got sick with *something* around 2008 which we later found out was Lyme with probably a co-infection of Bartonella. My daughter also got it, although she showed symptoms later.
The fact that numbers are increasing (300,000+ people per year in the US alone get Lyme/TBDs), it would be a disaster if this contributed to breast cancer, or any cancer at all.
