If you have performed a breast cancer risk assessment and discovered you are more than 30% likely than the average woman to get breast cancer, what should your next step be? Your first option should be to remain calm and not panic. Secondly, consider the opposite view that you have a 70% chance of not being diagnosed with breast cancer. Your third step should then be to modify your lifestyle by reducing the amount of alcohol you drink, or increasing your daily exercise.
As always, it is also a good idea to discuss with your doctor any other things you can do to help reduce your chances of getting breast cancer. So instead of asking, "What causes breast cancer?" start asking, "What prevents breast cancer?"
