    Injury prior to diagnosis

    Did you suffer a physical injury such as a fracture or whiplash or an emotional trauma such as the death of your spouse or child in the year or so prior to diagnosis?

      I did not suffer any trauma before diagnosis but my husband was diagnosed with cancer 2 months after my diagnosis. He had slot if issues so I put off my surgery for s few months to take care of him. Very difficult time for me .He passed away almost 3 years to the day of his diagnosis

      My son died one year before, then my sister died while I'm being treated and my dog died a week after my sister:(

      My son was in Afghanistan for a year before I was diagnosed. I was a wreck while he was there. All is ok but I've wondered if the mental stress contributed to my BC.
