In brief: Educate yourself

It's not like movies / TV.
If you keep up proper surveillance against breast cancer, including frequent self-exam and getting any new lump seen, the chances of your dying of breast cancer are actually VERY low -- considerably lower than your being killed in an auto wreck. Talk with your physician about genetic checks and other risk management; if your fear's still unmanageable, we can help.
