Natural Ways to Treat and Prevent Breast Cancer
Around 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women.
In 2017, it was estimated that approximately 30% of newly diagnosed cancers in women will be breast cancers. A woman’s risk of breast cancer nearly doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
About 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer. These occur due to genetic mutations that happen as a result of the aging process and life in general, rather than inherited mutations. The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are gender (being a woman) and age (growing older).
Being diagnosed with breast cancer, or any form of cancer, can be emotionally unbearable and physically draining.
