      I asked my oncologist and he said not for MM. I was disappointed since I have 2 grown daughters

      It's not hereditary, is my understanding. The MM docs don't know what causes it.

      I'm so sorry to hear about your dad's diagnosis! my mom has MM and it has a big toll on the entire family. if I'm not wrong, most (almost all?) cases are not heredetary... we didn't go through any tests after my mom was diagnosed. Sending positive vibes your way. 💪🏼🧬

      MM can run in families, suggesting there's some genetic component, but most are not hereditary. So even though having a family history of MM may increase the risk slightly, most cases are non-hereditary. If you have concerns about your dad's risk or family history, I recommend discussing them with your medical team, they will be able to provide personalized guidance ...
