There are actually several factors that cause a woman to be in a circle with a high risk of developing breast cancer, including:
- A personal history of breast cancer or some non-cancerous breast disease.
- A family history of breast cancer, especially in your mother, child, or sister.
- History of radiation therapy to the chest before you were 40 years old.
- Given evidence of certain genetic defects, women who carry defects in one of these genes have a greater risk of developing breast cancer.
Several studies have suggested that recent use (over the past 10 years) of oral contraceptives (birth control pills) may result in a reduced risk of developing breast cancer compared to women who do not use oral contraceptives (birth control pills). Although further research should be done to study the results of previous studies in order to know whether there is a relationship between the use of KB pills with synthetic hormones (estrogen and progesterone / progestin) that play a role in breast cancer. However, hormone replacement therapy with estrogen and progestin has been associated with a higher risk of developing breast cancer.
What causes breast cancer at a young age?
Diagnosing breast cancer in young women (under 40 years) is more difficult, because their breast tissue is generally denser than breast tissue in women who are over 40 years of age. However, it does not rule out early detection of changes that are felt in your breasts. You should also be able to distinguish between breast cancer changes while you are menstruationPMS symptoms or abnormal lumps.
In addition, breast cancer in young women (under 40 years) may become aggressive because usually young women do not believe in the presence of cancer cells that develop in their bodies when they are young, so minimal treatment can develop the movement of cancer cells. Women diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age are more likely to have mutated (changed) in the direction of cancer cell development. The delay in diagnosing breast cancer is also a problem. Many young women who have breast cancer ignore warning signs, such as breast lump or unusual nipple discharge (changes in the nipple and around the nipple), because they believe they are too young to get breast cancer.
