Onestly No i am sure it ain't your mom trying to get you to stop fighting

Having bruises does not directly lead to cancer

Blood cancers - leaukemia - one of the signs is bruising randomly and very easily, however, getting bruises directly from a fight won't cause cancer

Sounds like your mum is trying to scare you to stop you getting in to fights!

What's your mum's IQ?

She is saying that to scare u and to keep u awayfrom fights

anyone can get cancer at anytime, we all have the genes for it

I don't believe there is any connection between getting getting bruises from a fight and getting cancer, I would not put any more thought into it!

maybe ure fighting is adding to ure mums stress, im assuming she is stressed if ure aunt has cancer.
you cant get cancer from fighting, but if your aunt has then u r more likely to get it in the future, as it can be hereditary.
why not give your mum a break and quit the fighting, put more energy into doing things like supporting your family and spending time with your aunt

Chewy's Mom
Hey, she's trying to shock you into caring more about yourself than to fight like dogs in the street. Think more about your image and how stupid you two look beating on each other like that. Usually, you can't get cancer from bruises but anything is possible. You're young and impressionable. Just take her advice.. She's smarter, even if she might be wrong.

Bruises will not turn into cancer. Your mother is trying to scare you out of fighting.

Cancer happens when normal cells change so that they grow in an uncontrolled way. This uncontrolled growth causes a tumour to form
No amount of external trauma - hitting or bruising - can trigger this process.

Your mum is wrong. But she may just be trying to stop you from fighting.

And someone who beats you up is NOT your friend
Just responding to something someone said here: having one aunt who has had cancer does NOT increase your chances of cancer in the future. Hereditary cancer is rare - fewer than 10% of all cases - and a sign that it MIGHT be hereditary is if SEVERAL members of the same side of the family have had the SAME type of cancer, especially if some developed it at a younger than usual age.

You don't inhereit a general tendency to get cancer, so don't let that frighten you either

You are 99% more likely to die from some internal bleeding or head injury from those beatings than getting cancer from the bruises.

no u cannot get cancer from bruises. Hickeys, maybe, bit not bruises. She is just trying to mess with yer head...
I am afraid this scare tactic worked... no cancer-causing bruises has ever been reported....

You'll be ok.
(Next time , kick her @$$!!!)
