Breast Cancer Risk Factors

Some factors affect breast cancer risk a great deal and others by only a small amount. Some risk factors you can’t change. Other factors you may be able to control. Understanding which factors may affect your risk can help you work with your health care provider to address any concerns and develop a breast cancer screening plan that’s right for you. Our Breast Cancer Risk Factors Table compares factors by level of risk and strength of evidence.
