In brief: Every woman.
Considering the fact that 1 in 8 us women will get breast ca in their lifetime, no woman should think they are immune.
Certainly, women with first-degree relatives with breast ca may be at increased risk. Breast ca is also associated with women who have had elevated unopposed estrogen levels, ie, early menarche, late menopause, no prior children, long history of birth control pills/hormone rep.

In brief: Women
Women are at risk of developing breast cancer simply by being women.
Other factors such as family history, hormone use, nulliparity, genetic predisposition also play a role in breast cancer risk.
