3 in 4 Women With Breast Cancer Have No Family History
The number one risk factor for breast cancer is being a woman. While a family history of breast cancers increases a woman's risk, most women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of the disease.
Breast Cancer Genes Can Be Passed From Either Parent
Your mother and father can both pass genes that increase your chance of developing breast cancer. However, men with these genes have low rates of developing breast cancer themselves so, if your breast cancer genes are passed from your father, you might not have any family history of the disease.
There Is A Cure For Breast Cancer
That cure is early detection. About 95 percent of women with early-detected breast cancers go on to lead long, healthy lives. Only about 20 percent of women with later-stage breast cancer survive.
What Does This Mean For You?
It's time to learn how to maximize your chances of detecting an early, curable breast cancer. Read on to learn why women should not die from breast cancer.
