About breast cancer
Breast cancer is not an infectious disease. The most common manifestation of breast cancer is a painless lump or thickening of the breast. About half of breast cancer occurs in women who have no other identifiable risk factors for breast cancer except gender (female) and age (over 40 years old). Certain factors increase the risk of breast cancer, including age, obesity, harmful alcohol use, family history of breast cancer, radiation exposure history, reproductive history (such as the age at which menstruation begins and the age of first pregnancy), tobacco use and postmenopausal hormone therapy.
