Age: Age is the greatest risk factor for breast cancer, but i don't see yours listed. Early menstruation, and late menopause, first child after the age of 30, are also risk factors. Typically quoted risk of breast cancer in lifetime is 1 in 8. Here's a great on-line risk calculator: http://www.Cancer.Gov/bcrisktool/.
