    yes a family history of breast or ovarian cancer does put you at higher risk for breast cancer. talk with your doctor to have regular mammograms.

    I would say that a history indicates a risk of a genetic factor, wich can be a higher risk for having cancer... But that is 2 "if", and there is not only one kind of genetic cancer (BRCA), there are many other possibilities wich I think don't always involve a high risk... Best thing is to talk to a specialist about that...
