    It depends--what relatives have had breast cancer? If a first degree relative and on maternal side I believe unless it's changed they recommend a baseline 10 years younger than the relative was when they were diagnosed. That's what they were saying when I last did Mammograms in '05. Check with your Dr. and see what they say about it.

    You should ask the oncologist who is treating you mom.

    It doesn't hurt to ask GYN. Early detection is the key. I too have cancer on both sides of my family. I would say yes get that mammo ASAP just to be on safe side.
