My father had bowel cancer and died from it in

My father had bowel cancer and died from it in his 40’s, My grandfather didn’t have bowel cancer.

I recently have had abdominal pain along with blood in some amounts coming from my rectum, I’m still very VERY young so this is really worrying me, Would my fathers bowel cancer be inheritable or not?

My mum was diagnosed with primary bowel cancer and secondary liver cancer 6 months ago. The tumors in the bowel were removed but due to the amount of tumors in her liver and the areas that they are in, they have told us it is incurable. She was given a diagnosis of 2 years to live, if the chemo worked enough to slow the growth of the tumors. Luckily the chemo has been working. I would like to know roughly how long, once the chemo stops working, she will have before the cancer kills her. I have heard that some people have the chemo throughout their bodies within a month or two of stopping chemo, and they die very quickly after. She is 57 years old and has never been sick..
