The risk of breast cancer is a reality for all women. It is important to know about the risks and the options you have available. Many things can affect your risk of developing breast cancer. Your genes play an important role. There is an inherited gene in your DNA that may increase your risk. It may only show up in one woman in a family. It cannot be predicted where the gene will show up. However, genetics are not the only factor that could contribute to developing breast cancer. In fact, many different factors can play a role. Your diet, race, where you have lived, water or air pollution and your activity level can increase the chances of your getting breast cancer. Your doctor can talk to you about your risks. Get help by talking to your doctor about a breast cancer screening.

A mammogram can save your life. Mammograms can show tumors that may be cancer long before they can be felt. Treating tumors when they are still small makes curing cancer easier.

You may have a mammogram that does not look normal. If so, your doctor will likely suggest a biopsy. This is a tissue sample of the breast. A biopsy is minor surgery. The breast tissue from a biopsy is tested in a laboratory. The results will let your doctor know if it is cancerous. Your doctor will then talk with you about next steps.
