Hi, i'm 21 years old, and I've had two different tumors. Got a Chrondroblastoma when i was 12 and a Osteoid Osteoma just recently (21 y.o).

Does my body got some problem with its my cell splitting ability?? or something??

anyone know of anyone who got multiple unrelated tumors? and does it mean i got a higher chance of more tumors and cancers in my lifetime. or a tumor every 10 years?

or maybe its got nothing to do with it and i've just been really unlucky (or lucky that none of the tumors were cancers or dangerous)

anything i can do to reduce the probability of prevalence?
