Young Women (YW) generally do not  consider themselves to be at risk for breast cancer. Only 5 percent of all breast

cancer cases occur in women under 40 years old. However, breast cancer can strike at any age, and all women should be aware of their personal risk factors for breast cancer.  A risk factor is a condition or behaviour  that puts a person at risk for developing a disease. These risk factors have been incorporated into several risk factor models; the most well-known of these is the Gail Model.

There are several factors that put a women at high risk for developing breast cancer, including:

* A personal history of breast cancer or high risk lesion found by by biopsy.

* A family history  of breast, cancer, particularly in a mother, daughter, or sister.

* History of radiation therapy.

* Evidence of specific genetic chance ( BRCA I/ BRCA 2 mutation)- Women who carry defects on either of these genes are at greater risk for developing breast cancer.
