(((Twana)))

No, there is no link between cervical cancer and breast cancer or between cervical cancer and ovarian cancer. However, since you are so concerned and you have a family history of breast cancer, make sure you visit this issue with your gynecologist or a breast specialist. Regular check-ups and mammograms will be a must for you.

And don't forget to continue to have regular PAP smears. While your cervix is now gone, on a rare occasion it can recur on the vaginal walls, so it is important to keep those follow-up appointments.

Good luck to you! May you have a future filled with health and happiness!

linked cancer

Twana,
What Jeanine said in her post is exactly what my doctor told me. No link with cervical to breast or ovarian.

They took my ovaries with my radical because of the family risk of ovarian (5 direct relatives have had ovarian). Otherwise, my gyn/onc said I could have kept them.

Try not to let yourself worry too much about the "what ifs". Go for your regular check-ups, listen to your body and celebrate : your cancer free diagnosis!!! How wonderful for you.

Twana Now I' going to tell you someting my Dr. who is a gyn/onc , she told me about one month ago that there is a slight risk of colon and breast cancer. So I'm will take extra precuations
such as scheduling a colonoscopy and making sure I always get my Mamos on time, but I'm not going to worry about it. It's a waste of my time. Everything will be fine Twana we are all here for you. Take Care!
