In the US, 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer over the course of their lifetime while 1 in 1,000 men will develop breast cancer over the course of their lifetime.
Risk factors include being overweight, family history, not breastfeeding, and using hormone replacement.
In some cases, the first signs of breast cancer can be found during mammogram screenings. In others, a person can find a lump or mass in their own breast by performing a routine breast check.
