Ask-the-Expert Online Conference

Question from KAllen: My mom was diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer at the age of 78. Does that make me high-risk? I am 43 years old and have been having annual mammograms since I was 32 years old.
Answers - Carol Cherry, M.S.N., R.N., A.P.R.N., B.C. Any family history of cancer gives you some increased risk, but just how high that risk is could be better understood if you have a complete analysis of your family history on both sides of the family.
