Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Singaporean women. According a report from the Singapore Cancer Registry, breast cancer constituted 29.4% per cent of all cancers among women between 2008 and 2012.
Research has uncovered many risk factors associated with breast cancer, helping doctors to provide a fairly good estimate of a woman's risk of breast cancer.
For example, a lady who is aged 40 years and above, with a first degree relative (i.e. sister, mother or maternal grandmother) who has breast cancer is at a high risk of getting breast cancer.
