I've had cysts that have popped in my breasts and caused awful pain, and when I was pregnant they really hurt. I got a mammogram as a present from my stepfather for my 30th birthday, because I am built just like my paternal grandmother, who had breast cancer at the age of 45 and had her left breast removed, plus all her lymph nodes in her underarm and arm. She survived for another 40 years without recurrence. Yet, I have always feared having breast cancer like my grandmother.
