In brief: Finding a good doc!

Risk factors dictate the "biggest" concern.
Women over 40 that appear to be perfectly healthy can still get breast cancer. Your environment and diet can affect skin cancer, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis etc. To truly figure out what your biggest issue is, you need a doctor that will spend a little time examining you and more time asking questions. Find that doc and let them help you with you.
