Do Regular Mammograms Raise The Risk Of Cancer?

We are five friends aged 70 to 72 and have all had regular mammograms (every three years) over the past 20 years. 

After our last check, three of us were diagnosed with breast cancer. Could this be linked to the many X-rays we have undergone over the years? 

We are all doing well with our treatment but is this something that should be looked at?
