Learning About Breast Cancer
No. My mom had breast cancer, and it's something I think about a lot. So far, I don't and none of her sisters have been diagnosed. Your chances do increase if your mother, sister, or daughter has been diagnosed with breast cancer, but it's definitely not a guarantee you will get it. I think a lot of it depends on if you carry the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene. You may want to ask your doctor about getting tested for this if you have a family history. Hope this helps!
