Breast cancer risk factors

Risk can be assessed by History ALONE

  • History of breast carcinoma, family history – BrCa1, BrCa2
  • Age – old
  • Late menopause
  • Obesity and lower social class
  • Nulliparity (or low/late parity) and lack of breastfeeding
  • Early menarche
Basically there is an increased risk as exposure to oestrogen increases.
