What Influences Your Breast Cancer Risk?
Ever wondered whether you're at risk for breast cancer? A woman's chance of being diagnosed during her lifetime is 1 in 8 (about 12 percent), assuming that she lives to age 90, according to BreastCancer.org. And while it's possible to decrease some risk factors by modifying certain habits (such as alcohol consumption), many risk factors aren't modifiable, like the age when your period began. But having several risk factors doesn't mean that you'll automatically get the disease. Take this quiz to see how many risk factors you have, then learn what you can do about them.
