” Most breast cancers are found in women who are 50 years old or older.  Women who have inherited changes (mutations) to certain genes, such as BRCA1 and BRCA2, are at higher risk of breast and ovarian cancer.  Some women will get breast cancer even without any other risk factors that they know of. Having a risk factor does not mean you will get the disease, and not all risk factors have the same effect. Most women have some risk factors, but most women do not get breast cancer.  You may want to change the risk factors you can change that you have like immobile or obese to prevent breast cancer from happening.”
