Family history of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Increased risk of cancer?

I have a question abut cancer. My mother and her sister both had non-hodgekins lymphoma and I just wanted to know since they both had it does it increase the chances of me getting that or any other type of cancer. The reason for the question is my gynocologist found a lump in my left breast last week. I have had some other sympyoms for a while but really never thought anything about it. I am waiting to hear from my mammogram

Some form of non-hodgkin's lymphoma may have familiar predisposition. Brest lump may be due to NHL but that is a rare possibility. First you have to rule out fibroadenoma. Your mammogram can give you the result . Nothing to worry right now. Follow your doctors' advise. Take care.
