An unhealthy diet is the main reason for all cancers. Girls who eat high-fat food during puberty may have a high risk of developing breast tumor later in life.

Breastfeeding protects women from breast tumor. Women are at risk who doesn’t feed their child through breastfeeding.

Breast cancer in family members

Breast tumor history in family members increases the risk, especially in mother and sister cases. The risk increases double when two or more family members are affected by breast tumor.


Modern studies prove that women who start smoking after delivery or first childbirth increased the risk of cancer.

Pakistan is a developing country and most women living in ruler areas facing problems like poor family, lack of education, young age marriages, and many other issues. We all need awareness about breast cancer, treatment, healthy diet, healthy lifestyle, correct age for marriage, and childbirth planning. Regularly examine your self or by professional and avoid unnecessary medication.
