this sounds overthinking, which I do alot, but I really really hope this is true. I had my son at 21 and breastfeed shortly. Then at 22 had a HUGE lumpectomy. I now have mamograms every 5 years and am at extreme high risk for breast cancer. I also breastfeed my daughter when I had her at 24 and now this baby at 28. This deeply concerns me..wonder the cases of lumpectomy's then later breastfeeding, then getting breast cancer?

i saw that too -- i think it reduces the risk but is not a cure-all
