Breast cancer is one of the most common diagnosed cancers in women worldwide and is responsible for a large number of cancer-related deaths. Although, male breast cancer cases are also reported sporadically, the physical and anatomical differences are largely responsible for high statistics among women. Some common factors that put women at risk include, increasing age, family history of breast cancer, hormonal treatment particularly after menopause, inherited and acquired mutations, radiation exposure, exposure to cancer causing chemicals, obesity/ high lipid intake, early puberty and/or menopause, and alcohol intake.
