Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed non-skin cancer in American women. An estimated 192,370 American women were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. The risk of breast cancer increases as women get older. Over the years, researchers have identified certain characteristics, usually called risk factors, which influence a woman's chance of getting the disease. Still, many women who develop breast cancer have no known risk factors other than growing older, and many women with known risk factors do not develop breast cancer. The key is to get tested so it is diagnosed early. Take the Breast CancerAware Risk Assessment. l Learn more about the Chilton Breast Center.
