      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!

      A doctor will recommend a biopsy if they detect a suspicious place on the breast that they are not able to sufficiently identiy as nonthreatening through such diagnostic procedures as a mammogram or sonigram.
