Breast Cancer
(Risk and factor you can control and you can't)
  • Cancer Care Pune

Breast Cancer
  • Breast cancer is cancer which occurs in either
    the ducts or the lobules of the breast. Cancer
    can also affect the fatty tissue of the breast
    and later on move to the lymph nodes thus making
    it more severe. Let us have a look at the
    different risk factors of breast cancer and
    whether they can be controlled or not.

Controllable risk factors of Breast cancer
  • Weight If you have a BMI of 25 then be sure that
    you become prone to getting affected with Breast
    cancer. Keeping your weight restricted is one
    risk factor that is under your control. Extra fat
    cells mean more estrogen which increases the
    chance of cancer cells to grow.

  • Drinking Alcohol In comparison to women who do
    not drink those who do at least three times a
    week increase their chances of getting the
    disease by 15 . The number of drinks you
    increase per day also increases this chance by
    another 10. Same holds true for smoking as well.

  • Unhealthy diet It is an underlying truth that no
    food can make you get breast cancer. But by
    consuming certain healthy foods, you definitely
    reduce the probability of getting it. These would
    include items like fruits, legumes, vegetables,
    and whole grains would reduce any unhealthy cell
    changes seen in the body.

  • Less exercise There have been researches which
    prove that if you exercise regularly every week,
    you reduce the chance of getting breast cancer.
    Regular exercise would limit your blood sugar and
    a hormone named insulin growth factor which
    regulates the behavior of your breast cells.

Uncontrollable risk factors of Breast cancer
  • Genetics If someone in your family has had
    mutations in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene chances are
    you would get the disease too. You will receive a
    mutated copy of this gene from your parent, and
    then you are exposed to the risk of getting

  • The previous history of breast cancer Supposing
    you have been affected by breast cancer in the
    past then you may get it again, and there is
    nothing you can do about it. Similarly, if your
    mother or sister has had it your chances of
    getting it nearly doubles.

  • Dense breast tissue Fatty tissue, glandular
    tissue, and fibrous tissue are what makes a
    typical breast. If a woman has less of fatty
    tissue and more of the other two, then she is
    supposed to have dense breasts. Such women have
    1.5 to 2 times higher risk of getting breast
    cancer as opposed to a woman with normal breast

  • Radiation therapy on chest If at a young age
    you had to get radiation therapy on your chest
    for some other treatment you may face breast
    cancer incidence later in life. However, this
    situation does not hold true for women who have
    had the same done after the age of 40.

  • Breast cancer can be detected on time provided
    women learn to detect the symptoms. There are
    some risk factors which increase your scope of
    contracting the ailment, but if you are careful
    and maintain a healthy lifestyle, you may be able
    to keep it away.
