A risk factor is anything that increases a person's chance of developing cancer. Each year, more than 190,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute, the incidence of breast cancer in the United States has decreased by two percent between 1999 and 2006. The reason for the decline is not fully understood. Knowing the risk factors for breast cancer can help you take preventive measures to reduce the chance of developing the disease. In general, most breast cancers are sporadic, which means that they develop from damage to the genes of a person that occurs by chance after birth. The following factors can increase a woman's risk of developing breast cancer: general (age and sex), genetics (family history and hereditary factors), body (obesity, having no children, high breast density, certain breast changes, menstrual history (Sedentary lifestyle, heavy alcohol use), previous treatments (birth control pills, combined postmenopausal hormone therapy, exposure to diethylstilbestrol, exposure to radiation).
