Sorry, Do't worry: Majority of breast cancers are not hereditary, besides your mom, other members of your family, your aunts in mother's side have it, then you need genetic studies, braca i &ii. Other wise at your age , regular breast exams only rarely mammogram indicated. Your community hospitals will take care of uninsured poor patients free, call your local american cancer society.
