What is breast cancer?
Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast.
Facts About Breast Cancer In The United States
Although many types of breast cancer can cause a lump in the breast, not all do. Many breast cancers are found on screening mammograms which can detect cancers at an earlier stage, often before they can be felt, and before symptoms develop.
That’s why it’s important to get your yearly breast exam as part of your annual, even if you do not get your pap.
What are the risk factors for breast cancer?
Women with certain risk factors are more likely than others to develop breast cancer. Some risk factors (such as drinking alcohol) can be avoided. But most risk factors (such as having a family history of breast cancer) can’t be avoided. Having a risk factor does not mean that a woman will get breast cancer. Many women who have risk factors never develop breast cancer.
Environmental And Lifestyle Risk Factors
What can you do to modify your risk?
Maintain a healthy lifestyle
Some healthy behaviors (such as maintaining a healthy weight and exercising) may reduce the risk of breast cancer.
