My mom was 30 when she got diagnosed for Ovarian Cancer ( Stage 3 ) and stage 1 Breast Cancer.
Cancer is in the family also.

Dear sab48,

Thank you for reaching out to us today.

If you have a first-degree relative who was diagnosed with breast or ovarian cancer (mother, sister, daughter) or was diagnosed at a young age (30 or younger) talk with your health care provider about when you should begin screenings and your individual risk.

I wish your mother all the best in getting well.
