Breast Cancer

Instructions
Module 7 Final Exam
Breast Cancer is what I chose. – The instructor asks us to explain why we chose our disease. I chose breast cancer because it runs in my family. My mother, grandmother, and two aunts have passed away from breast cancer. My older sister is currently in remission a second time with being diagnosed with breast cancer. I myself have had my doctor suggest that I get genetically tested to see what my chances of having breast cancer may be. However, I’m afraid to find out what it may be. I had a biopsy a couple years ago and the test was normal.
