Lower Your Risk for Breast Cancer

While there is no "magic bullet" in terms of preventing breast cancer, the following recommendations may help you to lessen your risk:

  • Don't smoke
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Limit alcohol consumption
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Know your breasts so you can spot irregularities, like a lump or change in shape, size or texture
  • Conduct regular breast self-exams in front of the mirror, in the shower or lying down
  • Have a yearly breast exam by a qualified physician, usually a gynecologist
  • Begin mammogram screenings at age 40
  • Learn your risk factor – women at high risk should discuss their options with their physicians
