Risk factors

And how to do that? For starters, reducing the exposure to risks factors like obesity, lack of physical exercise and alcohol consumption.

Did you know that not being pregnant before 30, not completing a full term pregnancy ever and not breastfeeding can increase the risk of breast cancer?

You should also know that taking hormone replacement treatments during menopause and some oral contraceptives can also affect the development of this condition.

Besides taking into account all this facts, the earliest the cancer is detected, the higher the chance you have to survive it. Mastectomies and chemotherapy are less likely to happen with an early diagnosis.
