Yes but I stopped reading at the mention of RAF - based on the number of men that have passed through this forum over the years who either served in the RAF, flew commercially or tinkered with engines, you were doomed the day you signed up.
Cancer Research UK is paraphrasing more detailed research so many of these statements are rather bald. Increased risk is specifically if the father or grandfather were diagnosed young - father diagnosed over the age of 60 had no increased risk according to the European study. Similarly with breast cancer - it was concluded that the risk of PCa was higher if a mother or other close female relative had been diagnosed young and many mothers would cook their own tea in the same old pans as their sons' food. My mum wrapped everything in clingfilm regardless of who was going to eat it :-/
Your instinct may be right Mr A that there is a genetic link in your family but based on what you say, it is perhaps more likely to be HOX or another gene rather than BRCA as you don't mention any very young diagnoses, ovarian cancer or pancreatic cancer in the family?
