The number of breast cancer cases has almost doubled since 1970, but the treatment and observation measures have been so effective that the death rate is steadily decreasing. It is however very important to reduce risk factors so that few cancers begin, and today's modern genetic diagnostics provides opportunities to do this. Even people who have already been diagnosed with breast cancer will benefit from knowing the various risk factors that they are subject to, in order to eliminate as many risks as possible. Therefore, it is important to know one's own genetic predispositions and to make specific lifestyle changes that will maximize the opportunity for a healthy life.

Most cases of breast cancer are caused by an unfortunate interaction of genetic predisposition and environmental triggers. Women who have a high risk of breast cancer are at an even higher risk if they follow an unhealthy lifestyle. It is important for women to know their genetic risk, and if necessary to take preventive measures and/or make lifestyle changes.

Although some cases of breast cancer occur sporadically with age, it is estimated that genetic predisposition is responsible for about 58% of breast cancer cases. Ten genes associated with breast cancer can now be tested for traits that affect an individual's risk of disease. A person with a strong genetic predisposition to cancer can reduce their overall risk by adopting a balanced diet and avoiding other risk factors. Also, regular checkups will allow the early detection of the disease, and the timely treatment.
