KNOW YOUR CHANCES OF HAVING BREAST CANCER.
“THE RISK FACTORS”
Anything that increases the chance of developing a disease is called a Risk factor.
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.
