Understanding the diagnosis


Well as far as my experience goes, it had run in my family and so I’d gotten a couple of tests done just to see a baseline. I think I’d had one done before and that was when I was about 34 years old. My mum had it when she was 45 and my grandma and all of my aunts had had it as well. So I kind of thought that I would probably get it, but I didn’t think it would be for a long period of time. But I thought I would just set a baseline up just so we would know what my breast tissue was like and we would know what to look for. And then my husband and I had started talking about maybe having kids, and so I thought I should probably get a test done just because I knew that I wouldn’t be able to do that for a few years after I was pregnant, and when I was breastfeeding, and that kind of thing.
