Being overweight or obese after menopause: Older women who are overweight or obese have a higher risk of getting breast cancer than those at a normal weight. Nurses from different parts of Louisiana were present to educate students and provide free breast exams.

"I think a lot of women know about breast cancer but I think lot of young women don't think about checking themselves and making themselves aware", Eberts said. However, genes aren't actually the thread that links all breast cancers together.

'In Ghana, majority of breast cancer patients report so late that in most cases treatment offered is ineffective and cure is often impossible, ' it notes. Of those, the BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations are the most common.

The number of women who will die from breast cancer each year in the United Kingdom is expected to rise within four years if adequate government action is not taken.

While home breast cancer examination is not the best option for many people, according to experts. "Just because one of your relatives had breast cancer does not mean you are absolutely fated to develop it", says the Johns Hopkins Medicine Breast Center. More people are getting sick.

Most breast-cancer-related tests fall into one or more of the following categories - Screening tests (such as yearly mammograms) are given routinely to people who are not suspected of having breast cancer with the objective to find breast cancer early, before any symptoms can develop and the cancer usually is easier to treat.

If you've had a genetic test and found that you don't have a predisposition to breast cancer, don't stop being vigilant.

"Regular breast cancer screening can catch a cancer early, when it is most treatable", said Dr. Virginie Daguise, MSPH, Director of DHEC's Bureau of Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention. "So I think it is important to support events that promote educating health awareness to others and proper steps to get examined".
