In brief: Must talk to surgeon

This should be an hour-long discussion that depends on your specific diagnosis as well as family and personal history.
400 words wont justify an answer without having more information. I caution against the media bias to bilateral prophylactic mastectomy, which is an individual decision that should be made between patient and surgeon. This drastic surgery is not always the right answer to cancer.
