How much bigger risk do I have in getting breast or ovarian cancer since I have a family history of it?

My Grandmother had skin cancer at age 30, breast cancer at 45 and finally ovarian cancer at 70 which she passed away from.

I've heard about the BRAC1 & BRAC2 genes, should I be getting tested for them now?
