Can retinoblastoma be related to breast cancer?

Can retinoblastoma be related to breast cancer?
From Baboca, December 8, 2008
Hi everyone, I recently found out that I had a retinoblastoma at the age of 3 (and not a bening tumor as I was told). At the age of 31 I had breast cancer (I am now 34) and I am just slowly finding out that there may be a link between retinob. and breast cancer? I was wondering if anyone has any experience or knowledge regarding this? I am hoping that I am just a genetical freak and won't have to worry about passing on all if this to my future children. I'd appreciate any input. Thank you! alma

Hello Alma, I did not have retinoblastoma, but I have read on this network that a lot of research has been done regarding future cancers after retinoblastoma. What did your oncologists think about this? Marie
