Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK.  But around a third of cases are preventable.

Sadly, not all breast cancer cases are preventable, and people will be diagnosed through no fault of their own. But studies have shown that by making changes to your lifestyle you can reduce your chances of getting breast cancer significantly.

Breast Cancer UK uses the latest academic research on breast cancer prevention to provide guidance on how to reduce your risk.
