Firstly, forgive me for my probably indecent English.
I was reading about how cancer evolves in a cell and that cancer can become inherited. I need a little brainstroming here so I can understand how this actually happens. So the germline cells that produce sex cells ( ? ) gets the effects of carcinogens/radiation causing there to be mutations in them..so what actually happens that the effect of the mutation gets inherited? In a human. So human A gets radiation in her ovaries? Causing the germline cells to start producing mutated sex cells? But aren’t the eggs already been "evolved to the finest" when human A was just a thing in her mothers belly?
I’m so confused and not sure where I went wrong.
>.< I feel like I am doing a terrible job trying to explain what I need to know..but I hope someone gets what I’m trying to ask ><
Yes, well if you say it like that it makes more sense. So there’s an egg/sperm cell and in it happens a mutation that leads to cancer..and it gets inherited..so if this persons has a child it will have a mutation in the DNA and the child might get cancer from that, and the childs child aswell.
Ok, so if this is the case, thank you for clarifying!
