Risk Factors

All women can get breast cancer, but some women, because of certain factors, may have an increased chance of having breast cancer. Some of these risk factors include:

  • A personal history of breast cancer.
  • A family history of breast or ovarian cancer.
  • Female hormones in the body longer due to early periods or late menopause.
  • Taking birth control pills and estrogen.

A woman's risk of developing breast cancer also increases with age. In fact, 75-80 percent of breast cancers are found in women age 50 and older.
