Breast cancer has become a major health issue all over the world, especially in India. Knowing about the breast cancer risk factors, educating our society about breast cancer, its signs, and symptoms, precaution, and treatments can lower the breast cancer risks. Breast cancer risk factors are categorized into two types:
Risks factors that can be changed
These are the factors we have a control over.
Smoking & Alcohol Consumption
Hormone replacement therapy
Risk factors that can’t be changed
These are the factors we have no control over. If breast cancer stems from one of the breast cancer risk factors that can’t be changed, it still can be treated and healed fully if diagnosed at early stages.
Exposure to radiation
The family history of cancer
At Orchids Breast Health, we believe that prevention, precaution, and early detection is the best breast cancer care. Thus our team of expert doctors and on-surgeons run a risk reduction clinic where patients and their families are made aware of breast cancer risk factors, signs and symptoms and other prevention and precautionary techniques to reduce or control breast cancer risk factors.
