I'm secretly Cassandra Cain aka Black Bat disguising herself as a Cancer Biology PhD student.

I'm a researcher, writer, somewhat graphics-maker, dog-lover, and keyboard-smashing fan of DC Comics and the Avatar universe. Here are 3 other things you should know about me: I'm still upset over Young Justice being cancelled, I wish I was part of the Batfam, and Mako is my pouty firebending hot boy v2.0.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

                        Anonymous asked "How much people in your family who have had cancer would be a good prompt to test for Lynch syndrome, if you know?"


                        What a crazy question, because the current lab I’m rotating in actually studies Lynch syndrome aka hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC). So when I saw this I had to do a double take. 

                        There’s actually a criteria that’s been established for use in research and in clinics when characterizing someone as having Lynch syndrome. It’s known as the Amsterdam Criteria (after the location of the convention it was decided at). I think you have to hit all 4:

                        • 3 or more family members, one of whom is a first degree relative (parent, child, or sibling) of the other 2, with a confirmed diagnosis of HNPCC
                        • 2 successive affected generations (for example, grandma has it, as well as her son, your father)
                        • 1 or more of the HNPCC-related cancers diagnosed before the age of 50
                        • Exclusion of another type of colorectal cancer, familial adenomatous polyposis (basically this cancer progresses using different pathways than HNPCC)

                        Keep in mind this only deals with HNPCC. If someone else in your family has colorectal cancer that’s not HNPCC, it may not be considered Lynch syndrome. HNPCC can be diagnosed by specific genetic markers. 

                        As always, the word you should trust is a doctor or genetic counselor, but I hope this helped!
