Breast Cancer

The most common risk factors for developing breast cancer are being a woman and getting older. However, 5-10% of breast cancers are caused by a gene that can be inherited from your mother or father.

Breast Density

What is Breast Density?
Breasts are made up of a mixture of fibrous and glandular tissue and fatty tissue. Your breasts are considered dense if you have a lot of fibrous or glandular tissue but not much fat. Density may decrease with age, but there is little, if any, change in most women.
