Hello and thanks for the query.
Since your mother and sister died of breast cancer and you feel knots in your breast ,then you must consult a gynecologist and get yourself properly evaluated by getting a mammogram and ultrasound of the breast.
If these tests are doubtful then MRI or biopsy of the breast can be done to make he diagnosis.
I hope to have answered your query however you can revert to me for any further query.
Thanks and best of luck.
