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.

I was 42 when dx the first time Stage 11a, then here we go again at 44 this time Stage IV.......  I have 2 daughters age 20 and 25.  And I too struggle with the knowledge that this is genetic and could be passed to them.  I make it my mission in life to educate them about bc prevention, and the importance of being your own advocate for your health care.  I look back on the what if's in my life.  Back in 1994 I had surgery for a cyst on my ovary and the doc noticed a small pea on my right breast.  One doc suggested a needle biopsy, but the chief at the time didn't think it was necessary.....needless to say 10 years later the little pea grew and was not diagnosed until I found the lump.  It's been a wild ride ever since. Smile and Be Blessed!
