Multiple things here. Meningioma in brain, high-grade DCIS in one breast, ADH in other breast, basal cell carcinoma, and multiple symptoms of a rare inherited neuropathy that is in my family. A novel mutation was found on a gene that everyone seems to be investigating as it has been linked to inherited neuropathy and a number of cancers, including breast, melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers, prostate, and others. Traveltext - the gene is NDRG1, and a group of researchers at the University of Sydney have published a number of papers on it. The U.S. NIH has also identified the loci - 8q24 - as an area with increased risk for breast cancer, and other researchers have identified that loci as an areas of increased risk for prostate cancer.
