Is it possible to get breast cancer from wearing a sports bra?

Breast Cancer: The type of clothing you wear is not a risk factor in developing breast cancer. Risk factors for developing breast cancer include but are not limited to female gender, age, strong family history of breast cancer, and certain medications. If you have breast pain, a breast lump, nipple discharge or other concerns then see your doctor!
