It doesn't kill you until it spreads.
And then once she hits 50 and no one cares anyway, then get the breasts removed.
Again, I'm not trying to be cynical. I guess I just am.
I read she has some mutated gene making her very likely to get breast cancer. Her mom died early from it. It said she was about 87% risk of cancer. 6 months goes by, and it can be too late, cancer can spread quick. She would rather get it done now than find out she has it and have to get treatment. Treatment for cancer sucks.
