Has anyone every been diagnosed with neurofibromatosis(referred to as NF1 or NF2)? I would like to hear your stories related to this medical condition. I have had NF1 since I was 7 and I am now in my mid 30's. Survived cancer once from this disease and now going through cancer again.

Anyone been diagnosed with cancer as a result of NF1 or NF2? Please share your stories.

I have NF1,never had cancer from it but my Mom has NF1 and has one that turned to cancer in her leg.Going through chemo now.My nephew had lekema that is a link to his NF.There seems to be a strong link to cancer and NF in the family so I am nervous about my spinal tumors.But cant have them biopsyed cause of where they are at.
