Not concerned....: ... But alert. How do you know that your sisters' cancers did not have an inherited component? Were they seen by a geneticist? If you have several sisters with breast cancer, i think it would be proper that you be seen by a specialist it inherited cancers for an evaluation regarding risk assessment and possible genetic testing. Best to you.
