Bleeding after sex. Family history of breast cancer. Should i be worried?

Hi, my question is regarding bleeding after sex. I am 41 years old and have given birth to 4 children vaginally. They are 19, 18, 5 and 4. My mother is a breast cancer surviver when she was 42 and had cancer removed from her endrometrial lining this past summer at the age of 67. I have had no complications with any pregnancy and have had only my husband of 20 years as a sexual partner. I have had mamograms but have not had a pap smear since after my last son who is now 4. I have never had any issues other than cysts on my ovaries which were detected during an ultrasound and mri for a back issue 10 years ago. Should I be concerned?

You could just get a routine screening mammography as far as breast cancer running in your family is concerned.
As for bleeding after sex, irrespective of whether you have any family history or not, please consult your gynecologist and get an ultrasound scan of your pelvis and a pap smear.

Hope this helps,
