I keep hearing wearing a bra at night can give you cancer. Can sports bra's really give you breast cancer?

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