Just like every woman has different health care needs, every woman’s risk of developing breast cancer is unique. Everyone has some risk of developing breast cancer. According to BreastCancer.org, 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. This means the average woman’s breast cancer risk is 12-13% (compared to a man’s much-lower lifetime risk of 1 in 833). That is why, in general, all women aged 40 and older are urged to get a yearly mammogram.
