When I was just a child, my grandmother died of breast cancer. I remember hearing some time later that I had a one in eight chance of getting breast cancer myself as a result, and that my mother had a one in two chance of the same thing. While new studies have shown that’s not true and that only 5-10% of breast cancers are hereditary, it’s something that worried me in younger years.
