According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Most breast cancers are found in women who are 50 years old or older. There are steps every person, at any age, can take to help the body stay as healthy as possible, such as eating a balanced diet, maintaining a healthy weight, not smoking, limiting alcohol, and exercising regularly. While these may have some impact on your risk of getting breast cancer, they cannot eliminate the risk.
For many women, mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. Routine screenings starting at age 45 to 50 and individuals should speak with their health care provider about the benefits of screening and when to start.
