Nope: But don't let people do that to you! Ouch!
Can you get breast cancer if your breast get squeeze really hard and the next day it became very painful, swollen, red, warm, and lumps?
I wish we knew!: We really don't know what causes breast cancer. We do know that women with a long exposure to estrogen are at a higher risk. If you started your period early, or never got pregnant, you have more estrogen exposure. But these are things you can't really change. However, alcohol intake is associated with breast cancer, so decrease how much you drink. And lower your body fat. And avoid bpa plastics.

Usually 40: For women without a family history of breast cancer, then yearly mammograms start at age 40. If there is a family history of breast cancer at young ages (less than 50), then patients are followed in a high risk program and imaging is determined (in many we start 10 years prior to the youngest diagnosis). People with brca mutations in their families should be in a high risk program as well.
If a woman doesn't have fully developed breasts, is it still possible for her to get breast cancer?
Yes: Each person can decide what treatment they would want, or if no treatment is wanted. You would need to be fully informed of the risks of treatment or no treatment. Untreated cancers grow, and spread. Neglected breast cancers can turn into open bleeding skin ulcers, spread to lung or bones, etc.
Paternal grandfather had breast cancer in his 70s. no other immediate family history. I'm a 30 y/o woman, am I at greater risk? When to get 1st mammo?
Not greater risk: Unless familial history with BRACA gene, 95% of breast cancers are environmentally related, usually with virus exposure to the MMTV virus. At age 30 physical breast exam monthly most important. Mammo not good choice since breast tissue at your age sensitive to RT and too dense to reveal most lesions. One mammo at 35 and if normal next ones begin yearly starting at age 40
Possibly: I would imagine risk is much lower because of the mastectomies and removal of ovaries, depending on stage of transformation.See 1 more doctor answer

Extremely Low: Unless you have something called BRCA 1 or 2, or have another CA genetic issue, the chances are extremely remote. Still see your GYN for examination especially if you feel a lump.See 2 more doctor answers
Occurs when glandular cells lining the milk ducts and lobules of the human breast begin to grow in an unregulated manner.
