My mother-in -law died long before due to Cancer.   My wife had renal cancer at age of 42 year(right kidney removed)now she is well.Son of My brother-in-laws died at age of 10 year due to blood cancer.
Now i am worried about my 2 children.Son is 17 year and Daughter is 14 year.Is there any chance of cancer to them ? What type of test required for them?
Thank you.

Cancer cells are nothing but un-proportionate growth of cells and hereditary does play a role because your genes are more prone to generate such cells. But having said that there is no theory that it would happen, I would suggest to be careful of any symptoms of your children related to kidneys. Regular check up should be done on an yearly basis, normal check up. Don't forget to live your life and let the children enjoy their childhood you can't live in fear of something which may or may not happen.
Being cautious is what is important, in addition stress is also a triggering factor for cancer cells so don't stress yourself and children and enjoy your life.
Cross the bridge if you come to it
