  • My father passed away due to stomach cancer at the age of 35 when I was 8 years old. Now I am 32 and I am starting to wonder a little more about the type of cancer he had and how hereditary it is. I stumbled across HDGC on the Internet and panicked a bit, especially now that I am a parent. Due to his death being so long ago, medical records and pathology would no longer be available. There were no other stomach cancer cases in his side of the family that I'm aware of. However I am blood type A and I'm pretty sure that makes me more susceptible. I'd really appreciate some guidance on where to go from here! I've been very anxious about it recently. Click here for answer
