You need to contact a medical geneticist. Since it is necessary to understand what type of cancer the grandmother suffered from, whether there are risk factors for the development of cancer. An excellent colleague is also on the question: https://thequestion.ru/account/39406/irina-zhegulina?utm_source=thequestion&utm_medium=search&utm_term=%D0%B3%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B5%D1%82 % D0% B8% D0% BA

You may be reassured by a study published in the journal "Nature"
It provides evidence that the development of tumors is influenced mainly by environmental factors, rather than genetic predisposition.
Researchers have evaluated 30 major cellular mutations leading to cancer (colon, lungs, bladder, thyroid, etc.). It turned out that only 10-30% of them are caused by internal factors, such as heredity, while 70-90% of mutations are directly related to the impact of harmful environmental factors.
