Giuliana Rancic revealed on the Today Show this morning that she was diagnosed in the early stages of breast cancer, thankful that her RE insisted she get a mammogram before her 3rd cycle of IVF:

I just wanted to link another article discussing whether women undergoing IVF should get a mammogram:

http://vitals.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/10/17/8368474-dont-blame-ivf-for-rancics-breast-cancer-experts-say

The article also says that there is no link between an increased risk of breast cancer and IVF.
