In brief: Partly
You can lower the odds of developing breast cancer by limiting alcohol intake to no more than a drink or 2 per day (and mostly red wine), exercising regularly, and keeping your weight under control.

In brief: Healthy weight
We are not able to control most risk factors for breast cancer, such as being female, aging, and family history.
We can control our weight, as obesity is linked to an increased risk of breast cancer. In addition we can perform routine screening. Early detection leads to the best chance of a cure. Limit your alcohol intake, have babies, breast feed, and increase your physical activity.

In brief: Hope some day
Our present knowledge is inadequate, to prevent breast cancer, but modifying certain personal habits, like smoking, alcohol , high fat diets , breast feeding, avoiding exposure to bad environment, avoiding hormones, etc may reduce incident slightly but will not prevent completely.
