If I had a 9 in 10 chance of developing breast cancer, you can bet I'd try to reduce that risk. It's a no-brainer, right?
But losing both breasts in a double mastectomy, a procedure American celebrity Angelina Jolie recently endured, is another thing altogether.
It's easy to say I'd want to know my risk so I can manage it. It's harder to imagine my reaction if my odds were poor when I don't have a healthy bank balance to fund my recovery and reconstructive surgery.
