| | Could Leukemia be inherited?
I was wondering if Leukemia could be inherited. The only reason I ask is because on my father's side of the family, 2 people died from it.
My father's brother died from Leukemia when he was very young. Also my dad's sister had a daughter (my cousin) who died of leukemia. I dont remember her since she died when I was very young.
I'm curious since I am always "sickly" meaning, I get sick from colds and sinus infections all the time, I'm anemic but partically due to being born with beta-thalassemia trait, I have very small bones that break easily (I've broken several, even broke my tailbone delivering my son), I often get very dizzy also.
Should I ask my doctor if I should have some tests done? I hope I'm just not over-reacting. Also, let me know if it can be inherited.
