No. They are not.
No. I am not aware of any connection.
No. The shape of the breast has nothing to do with breast cancer.
No. Neither the shape nor the size of the breast has any impact on cancer occurence.
Yes. The odds of a woman developing breast cancer is about 100x greater than a man's risk.
BRCA gene ups risk. Men can get breast cancer though far less commonly than females. Be aware if there is a family history positive brca gene, tho females are at much higher risk for breast (and ovarian) cancer. Males who are positive for this gene also have a fairly high incidence of breast cancer. If strong family history of breast cancer, esp in younger women, males and female should be tested for the gene.
Yes. Yes they are.
Not true. I do not believe it matters.
Probably. High fat diet is probably linked to a slight increased risk of breast cancer. Decreasing fat intake to about 20% of daily calories is good for overall health.
Probably Not. While there is no clear link between french fries and the incidence of cancer, there is clear evidence between obesity and increased cancer rates. Maintaining a healthy body weight, eating a healthy diet and performing recommended cancer screenings are your best choices.
Very common cancer. Breast cancer is common. Most risk factors only indicate danger, but are not causes. Early detection is key (self exams monthly and mammograms). Several gene mutations increase risk. Testing is indicated if a number of relatives have breast, ovarian or pancreas cancer. Fibro-cystic disease is a benign group of conditions without cancer risk but fibrous density can make cancer detection harder.
See NCI Cancer Risk. On the web for a fairly full list of risks. Fibrocystic changes of the breast are normal for women in the us, and are not related to cancer risk.
I have ectopic axillary breast issue does this make me more prone to breast cancer. It is not painful ihave this under both armpits for the past 10yr?
No. Incidence will be same, how ever breast cancer can develop in the ectopic breast tissue also.
Yes, if gene present. There is a specific gene that can be tested to see if you have a susceptibility to breast, ovarian or colon cancer.
What to do if I am prone to having skin cancer. But if I get skin cancer on my breast, or even in my breasts a little, does that also count as breast cancer?
No, skin cancer on the breast is still skin cancer. Histologically, it is completely different than breast cancer.
Nope. Skin cancer on your breast is still skin cancer.
