Our expert says:
If your mother, any aunts or sisters have been diagnosed for breast cancer you should start screening at a younger age. Mammograms are however not as effective to pick up cancer in younger women due to density of breast tissue, so yearly physical breast exams and if needed, sonars must also be done.
