Aunt Leatha was 57 when she died of a rare aggressive form of breast cancer. She learned she had it only two years prior to dying from this form of breast cancer. My cousins are related through both sets of parents, so my risk is the same as theirs is of developing this rare form of breast cancer. They are more closely related than ordinary first cousins, since they are double first cousins.
The symptoms I've had myself recently had me frightened. I'm glad I had the mammogram, so my anxiety level is greatly reduced now that I know nothing abnormal showed up in the test.
