Will I get breast cancer?

Now that Mom has cancer, I started wondering well exactly how great are the chances of me getting breast cancer. And it seems like the statistics were not exactly what I wanted to hear, but at least I knew. And I guess, you know, they change and they're getting better and more people are living with breast cancer and later on they'll have a completely normal life. But I wanted to know, so when I'm old enough that the doctor suggests that I get a mammogram, I probably will.
