The causes of breast cancer aren’t fully understood. The genes you inherit, your environment, and how you live your life all play a part in contributing to your risk of developing breast cancer. In this section you’ll find some of the most common breast cancer questions answered, including how breast cancer develops, how common it is and how your hormones play a role in determining your level of risk.
A £10 donation today will help fund our research into the causes of breast cancer so we can prevent breast cancer for future generations.
