Yes CancerBro, can you please discuss the breast cancer risk factors in detail for us to understand the disease better.
Mrs. Brooks had a lot of breast cancer risk factors. The first one is late age of marriage.
First childbirth after 30 years of age, increases the risk of breast cancer.
Inadequate breastfeeding also increases the risk of the disease.
Early menarche, late menopause, and intake of hormonal replacement therapy after menopause, further aggravates the risk of breast cancer.
The previous history of breast cancer in the family may also increase the risk in other family members.
Previous history of radiation exposure to the chest wall, especially at a younger age, may also increase the risk of developing breast cancer.
The previous history of benign breast disorders may further increase the risk.
A lot of cases of breast cancer can be prevented if the risk factors are kept in mind.
