Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women within the age of 40. But if you think breast cancer only happens to those who have a family history, then you might be wrong. So is there a way to reduce risk of breast cancer? How often should you examine your breasts?

If you are looking for answers, here we are! Check out five facts you must know about breast cancer.

It's only about family history

Only 12% of women with breast cancer indicate a genetic predisposition. Hence you cannot rule out breast cancer just because none of your family members had it. Other factors that contribute to breast cancer are a sedentary lifestyle and hormone replacement therapy. In addition, the risk gets higher with regular consumption of alcohol. Apart from that, abdominal adiposity can also increase the chances of breast cancer.

Know more about breast examination

It would be best if you started examining your breast from the age of 18. Monthly self-examination and breast cancer awareness can help detect it at an early stage, reducing the fatality rate. Start a regular annual mammogram as soon as you hit 40. Knowing your breast is essential to notice changes such as a lump, nipple discharge or inverted nipples.

Know the risk factors:

Multiple factors increase the chances of breast cancer. Here is a list

  • · Genetic mutations like BRCA1 or BRCA2
  • · First-degree relatives with breast cancer
  • · Dense breasts
  • · Obesity
  • · Sedentary lifestyle
  • · alcohol consumption
  • · First pregnancy when you're above 30
  • · Bad diet
  • · History of endometrium, ovary or colon cancer

Speak up and ask questions:

It's always advisable to be curious about your health. In the case of breast cancer, awareness plays a crucial role. Ask questions if you see any change in your breasts. Talk to your doctor for more clarity. Connect with other women of your age and share your concerns with them. Being diagnosed with breast cancer is an isolating feeling. Creating your network will help you find more support.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
