CHEK2 genetic mutation and thyroid cancer
Due to having breast cancer twice, I have found that I have a CHEK2 genetic mutation. I was told that CHEK2 is rare and is associated with breast and colon cancer. My sister has the same CHEK2 component and her doctor told her that can cause thyroid cancer. There has been no mention of thyroid cancer to me. I am going to mention it to my doctors during my upcoming appointments with the oncologist and PCP. I am curious as to how many people have had thyroid cancer with this genetic mutation.
