My maternal grandmother, her sister (my maternal great aunt) and 4 of her 5 daughters (my cousins) all had (some have died) or have cancer. How greatly are my odds increased? Maternal great aunt had ovarian cancer and all the others were breast cancer.
I just completed IVF treatment and now have found a lump, should I insist I have a mammogram even though I'm only 31? The youngest in my family to develop cancer was 41.
