Breast cancer

Aside from age, most people diagnosed with breast cancer don’t have any known risk factors.

What’s the risk?

In general, the likelihood of a woman developing breast cancer by age 85 years is about 1 in 8. However, certain risk factors such as personal factors, family history and lifestyle can increase the chances of getting cancer. For example, the likelihood of a woman with a BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation being diagnosed with breast cancer by age 80 years is 69% to 72%.

  • The medium hours worked per week in paid employment across the household decreases by about 50% during breast cancer treatment.
