Breast cancer is a disease with familiar predisposition. Your first degree relative suffered from breast cancer this increases your chance of suffering from the same disease. As you have mentioned your age is 22 years, it is preferable that you should do MRI of both breast annually. At present some additional information needed. Have you notice any nipple changes or discharge? have you felt any lump in both breast or armpit(axilla) ? these should be checked by your doctors and at least Bilateral mammogram of breast is needed as soon as possible. take care.
