Know Your Risk

Risk factors are things that can increase a person’s chance of developing a disease. Your breast cancer risk factors may affect how you and your health care provider approach your breast health. So, be sure to have a full discussion with your health care provider about your personal risk factors. If you have an increased risk of breast cancer, you may benefit from a consultation at a high-risk breast clinic or with an expert in breast cancer.
