I’m classed as moderate risk of developing breast cancer and at the age of 39 I started having yearly mammograms. I had a benign lump removed in my 20’s and various other exams. My maternal grandmother passed away in her 50s of breast cancer and my mother last year at the age of 66 of ovarian cancer. I’m desperate to be tested but my local breast clinic don’t think I’m high risk enough. If I wanted it I was told I’d have to pay for it. I’ve researched and it’s very expensive.

I’m just wondering if there is someone else I can talk to about this as I worry every day.
