Where did Kate Middleton’s cancer come from: doctors voiced the cause of oncology in the Princess of Wales

After Kate’s admission that she suffers from a terrible ailment, the British subjects began to speculate where such a calamity befell the royal family, as the health of the prince’s bride should have been checked by doctors. As it is known, the main purpose of the monarch’s spouse is to produce healthy and strong heirs who can continue the royal dynasty. Therefore, all brides undergo thorough examination before the wedding. However, not all diseases can be detected immediately, although it is not difficult to identify genetic predisposition to ailments.

It should be noted that oncological diseases are often hereditary. For example, King Charles III did not just happen to get cancer, as before him, other monarchs also had oncological diseases. His mother, Elizabeth II, as well as his grandfather, George VI, and grandmother, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, all faced this ailment and had to undergo treatment.

However, nobody talked about Kate having a hereditary predisposition to cancer. As doctors explain now, Middleton was actually found to have a malignant tumor in her ovary. Initially, doctors diagnosed it as a cyst, and after the operation, it became clear that it was cancer. Many medical professionals are convinced that ovarian and breast cancer are very often inherited.

Also, it is believed that this type of cancer can develop due to an inherited mutation of genes, which doctors discovered in the 90s. As experts say, in such a situation, it is very difficult to immediately detect oncological disease.

Especially with regards to the ovaries, as any doctor may initially mistake the newly formed mass for a cyst, and only after the surgery and further analysis of biomaterial can the correct diagnosis be made. It is likely that this is what happened with the Princess of Wales.

It should be noted that there is no official information confirming this specific disease progression scenario for Kate Middleton, but many practicing physicians believe that her oncology developed specifically in the ovaries and may be triggered by a genetic mutation.
