How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?

Is this brain tumor hereditary? After my Dad passed 5 months after he was diagnosed with this, I found out his older brother passed 22+ yrs ago of the same thing and that his middle brother died of a "brain trauma".

It is not hereditary according to medical science. Brain trauma could be caused by any blunt force to the head but is not a cancer so doesn't count.

Our oncologist who is a brain tumor specialist assured me that glioblastomas are not hereditary. I certainly hope and pray they arent. I have 2 precious sons.
