Research has shown that a woman whose mother, sister, or daughter has had breast cancer is two to three times more likely to develop the disease (“Breast Cancer Causes…”). Inherited genes mutations can be passed from parents to children, but they don’t make cancer inevitable. The majority of women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history (Mayo Clinic Staff). Researchers have found a link between breast cancer and a woman’s amount of exposure to estrogen and progesterone over her lifetime. Women who began their period before age 12 or started menopause at an older age are more likely to develop breast cancer (Mayo Clinic Staff).
Also women who are obese have a greater chance of developing uterine cancer than those who are not. Other risk factors include women who have never produced children, started menstruating before the age of twelve, experienced menopause after age 55, have taken estrogen without progesterone for menopausal hormone therapy, those who took tamoxifen, the drug to prevent or treat breast cancer, and those who have had radiation therapy to the pelvis. Family history also plays a role in the chances of developing uterine cancer. Women with family members such as a mother or sister are at increased risk. Many women who are affected by this type of cancer may have none of the above risk factors as well as women who have these risk factors don’t develop the disease.
Unfortunately, there is still little known about the disease’s cause or cure. Currently the only means of increasing a breast cancer victim’s chance of survival is early detection by annual breast exams and education about the disease. A professional high quality mammogram is the most reliable way to find breast cancer as early as possible. By the time a lump can be felt in a woman’s breast, it is usually bigger than the size of cancers that can be found with a mammogram. About twenty five percent of breast cancers are found through monthly exams and thirty five percent are found through mammograms.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that over 184,000 new cases of breast cancer were diagnosed in women in 1996 (ACS Breast).

Disadvantages include disruption of the menstrual cycle in women. Learning that one is infected with breast caner is traumatizing and can cause depression.

Hopefully after this paper women will become more aware of this cancer and want to be more involved.
