Is ther any chances for me to have any cancer risk ?

Have a spot on Mammogram, father, brother, aunts, all but mom, died of cancer..... So, I lost everyone in my family to cancer, or aneurysms, have no sisters to calculate risk from, but all my maternal aunts died of metastasized breast cancer, dad and brother of leukemia.....does this enter into my cancer risk assessment ?

Hi.. Yes you are at high risk for getting cancer.. See a doctor for evaluation and if a mass is located then a biopsy may be needed..

Thank you for your reply.. have a consult tomorrow to evaluate mamo, cone compression, and ultrasound results.  Have been told by MD that since neither my mom or sisters had cancer, my risk factor is just normal............HELLO, I had no sisters and all mom's sister died of metastasized breast cancer, why doesn't that ring any alarms.....hard to figure......I feel I should insist on a Pathology report rather than an opinion of an image......
