Query about breast cancer
I am 34 year old and I wanted to know about the probability of breast cancer as my father's mother's own sister that is my father's aunt had breast cancer. I heard its genetic..so is there any chance I have to go for tests.. I had mastalgia so underwent a breast USG last year and it was normal..so as my father's own aunt(my grandmother's sister) had is there any chance of getting it in future? Apart from her no one else has the history of breast cancer.

Risk increases if your mother our sister has the BRCA gene. Here the genetic lineage is quite far( grandmother’s sister) So chances are very low. Still you can self palpate your breast (Breast Self Examination) to look out for any mass or lump. And if you feel a lump then ultrasound should be performed.
