Default Breast cancer

is it true that if breast cancer is in your family gene then there is a 80% chance that you are going to get this. my instructor was talking about this and i thought a 80% chance is pretty high! i would get it checked if i have insurance but for now, i'll settle for self-examination. what is the right way to self examine yourself for breast cancer? for any lumps? thanks

i know breast cancer is in the gene but i'm not quite sure about the percentage part. self examination is your next best if you can't go to a doctor. i'm not sure how the examination goes but i beleive you either lay down or stand up and put one arm up and feel around your breast for any lumps. go to the obgyn though when you get a chance

there are so many new products out there that donate some of the money they make to cancer research! i to buy all things if possible that donate some of the money to breast cancer. its for a good cause and most items are in pink.. and that works because pinks my favorite color!

I don't know about 80% increase, but I do know that in general, if a disease was in your family, you are more susceptible to get it. Like how people who have diebetes in their family have a greater chance of getting it, it's the same theory too.

I just make sure to keep getting check ups to make sure you'll be all right since you don't want to catch it.

learn to do a self examination and that can teach you how to check for your self and if you notice anything out of the ordanary then you will be able to feel it and then know that you need to get a doctor to check it out.. there are many ways for you to so self checks to makesure your health is good.

I don't know about the 80% thing but if that is true that is pretty scary because my grandma's sister actually has breast cancer so I don't know I guess I could possibly get it scary. I really need to do some research I didn't know you could get it that young i mean 18 that is really young.
