Some Risk Factors you can change; others you cannot

Not everyone with a risk factor or even several risk factors, will develop breast cancer.

Risk Factors include:

  • age
  • genetic mutations
  • family history of breast cancer
  • previous breast biopsy
  • an early first period or late last period
  • having no children
  • alcohol use
  • being overweight

The Mammography Department has informational brochures available that contain answers to many of the most often asked questions regarding breast health.
