A 24-year-old female asked:

Breast cancer: Usually the risk of breast cancer is figured on a closer relative than a "great grandmother". If your mother and grandmother did not have breast cancer, there is minimal cause to have testing done at your age of 22. Self examination, and regular checkups with your gyn physician are still important , however.
