    You are probably at higher risk than someone who has zero family history. That wasn't my case though. No history for me, I still got it. Just be vigilant about changes or unusual things going on with your body. Go to the dr for regular exams. But don't live in fear that you may get it. God bless.

    I agree with Jennifer. Cancer is sneaky though. My maternal grandmother had breast cancer in her late 70's. I was diagnosed at 52 with it. Be diligent with self exams and mammos and report any changes you notice to your MD.
