Hi all, I had BC in my family, dads side, grandma at 77 and Aunt at 51, so was having mammograms since turning 40, which this managed to grow in between. GP, Surgeon, and oncologist, seem very quick to dismiss a family link, saying they were old, when I put my sister 43 into the risk assessment tools, and now add me as her sister with BC in at 45, she becomes high risk. Have others had genetics tests. I thought I was doing the right thing with screening mammography, from 40, and now realise I should have advocated for more frequent screening for myself, although my GP even dismissed any cause for concern due to ages at diagnosis. My Aunty developed pancreatic cancer 15 years after her breast cancer and died about 6 months later, she said before she died that she had been told it was highly likely a genetic disposition. Too late for me, but what have other done about their genetic risks
