Are Brain Tumors Heredity?
Jump to this post
Thanks for the reply, @hussain My wife had a brain tumor and I can say the type she had was not the type that is genetically passed on and our adult children, and their children, have no health problems like that.
Again, I'd say the entire issue of genetic predisposition and heredity is a very complex one. Plus it is evolving very quickly as many new scientific discoveries are constantly being made.
I'd suggest that if this is a concern for you that you ask your doctor for her or his opinion about your specific health situation and genetics, etc.
