dear patient

with your medical history and cancer at such an early age, these symptoms are not to be taken lightly. When women get breast cancer at such an early age, it may be related to some altered genes (brca 1 and 2) that actually increase the risk of breast cancer in both breasts; thus my advise is to get in touch with your gynecologist so that an ultrasound and mammogram could be arranged

truly yours
