There was cancer in my family

I had breast cancer on both sides of the family. My maternal aunt had breast cancer about five years ago. It was found on a routine mammogram. She had a mastectomy and is doing well. My paternal grandmother also had a mastectomy. I believe both of them were post-menopausal. My mother was thought perhaps to have a breast cancer, but it was discovered she already had metastatic colon cancer. And my mother's father had colon cancer also. And my father died of a brain cancer.
