      That is a great question. its different for every cancer, and different for different groups of people. For breast cancer is 1/8.

      Just looking it up there, from Cancer Research UK (CRUK- a very reliable source)- overall you have a 1/2 chance of getting some form of cancer. So you can see why cancer research and new treatments are needed.

      Thanks for asking this, make me go and learn something new myself!
