Poll - How old were you when dx with BC
I am just curious to find out how old all of you were when first being dx'ed with BC (I don't need to know the year, I hate math so I wouldn't try to figure out how old you are now anyway). It just bothers me that they are still promoting waiting until you are 40 to get a mammo.
I was 29 when I was first dx with BC, 34 with loc reoccurance and 36 with Mets to liver. Good thing I didn't wait till I was 40!
My Onc suggests that my daughter get a mammo five years before I was dx'ed. She is almost 18 now! Also, I don't know if I have the BRCA gene or not, we are gettng ready to start that process but it scares me to know that I could have passed this to my daughter.
