Am I High Risk for Breast Cancer?

You may face a higher risk for breast cancer due to a number of factors, including:

  • A family history of breast cancer among your parent, siblings or at least two other close relatives
  • A family history of ovarian cancer
  • Multiple cancers within your family
  • A relative diagnosed with breast cancer before menopause
  • A known mutation, such as BRCA1, BRCA2, TP53, or PTEN in your family
  • An abnormal breast biopsy
  • Prior radiation to the chest
