Preventive Health and Breast Cancer Risk Reduction

Preventive health aims to stop disease before it starts – by making your health and well-being a priority.

When you practice preventive health, you take action, informed by evidence-based knowledge, to improve your chances of good health and better the odds of stopping disease before it starts.

Knowledge about risk factors can change the way you understand your risk of breast cancer. With that knowledge, there are changes you can make in your everyday life that will help to reduce your risk of breast cancer.

It may be useful to bear in mind that breast cancer is a complex disease and risk reduction is not a guarantee against developing breast cancer – but it does offer concrete actions we can take in our lives now to help reduce that risk and lead to improved overall health and well-being.
