1. 年紀大的女性不會患上乳癌

錯。 患乳癌的風險是隨著年齡的增長而增加, 在2013年, 估計有82%新增的乳癌個案
是發生在50歲以上的女性身上, 任何年齡的女性都有患乳癌的風險。

2. 接受X-光乳房造影檢查所接觸到的輻射會導致乳癌

錯。 現今的X-光乳房造影檢查儀器只需要用到非常少量的輻射, 研究證實, 因造影檢
查儀器所放出的輻射而受到傷害的機會非常低。 輻射的分量要比目前X-光乳房造影
檢查使用的輻射量高100至1000倍, 才足以增加因接受檢查而患上乳癌的風險。
而及早發現乳癌及接受治療的好處, 遠超於接受檢查所可能帶來的傷害。

3. 我不需要擔心患上乳癌,因為家族中並沒有人患上乳癌。

錯。 超過90%被診斷出患上乳癌的婦女, 家族中都沒有人曾經患上乳癌。

4. 餵哺母乳能夠減低患上乳癌的機會

對。 餵哺母乳的時間越長越好。 女性餵哺母乳的期間不會排卵, 從而降低一生人當
中體內存有的雌激素份量, 減低患上乳癌的機會。
