Some women will get breast cancer even without any other risk factors of which they are aware.
Having a risk factor does not mean you will get the disease, and not all risk factors have the same effect. Most women have some risk factors, but most women do not get breast cancer. If you have breast cancer risk factors, talk with your doctor about ways you can lower your risk(https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/breast/basic_info/prevention.htm) and about screening(https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/breast/basic_info/screening.htm) for breast cancer.
Risk factors include— Getting older. The risk for breast cancer increases with age; most breast cancers are diagnosed after age 50.
Genetic mutations. Inherited changes (mutations) to certain genes, such as BRCA1 and BRCA2. Women who have inherited these geneticchanges(https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/breast/young_women/bringyourbrave/hereditary_breast_cancer/)
are at higher risk of breast and ovarian cancer.
Early menstrual period. Women who start their periods before age 12 are exposed to hormones longer, raising the risk for breast cancer by a small amount.
Late or no pregnancy. Having the first pregnancy after age 30 and never having a full-term pregnancy can raise breast cancer risk.
Menopause after age 55. Like starting one’s period early, being exposed to estrogen hormones for a longer time later in life also raises the risk of breast cancer.
The 2020, census count for the state of Georgia was 10.7 million people. The change in population from 2010 was up by 1 million people, which was an increase of 10.6%.
It is great that Georgia is such a wonderful state to live, grow families and businesses, however; the number of newly diagnosed Cancer patients increases exponentially on a daily basis, as it does in many states. However, what can we do as a village, community, to help our sister's still trying to maintain their physical, emotional, and spiritual strength?

Physically Inactive. Women who are not physically active have a higher risk of getting breast cancer.
Overweight/Obese after Menopause. Older women who are overweight or obese have a higher risk of getting breast cancer than those at a normal weight.
Having Dense Breasts. Dense breasts have more connective tissue than fatty tissue, which can sometimes make it hard to see tumors on a mammogram. Women with dense breasts are more likely to get breast cancer.
