Dr. Vinay Aggarwal, internal medicine physician, answers some of the most frequently asked questions about breast cancer by women i.e. whether the history of breast cancer in the family increases their chances of inheriting it. The answer is yes because genetics play an important role in the development of breast cancer. There are two genes namely DRCA 1 and DRCA 2 that contribute to the occurrence of breast cancer. Another cancer that follows genetic pattern in the family is ovarian cancer. Women with family history of breast and ovarian cancer must consult a physician to know the potential risk of both. Another question that is commonly asked is about the importance of lifestyle modifications to prevent breast cancer. To prevent breast cancer, it is important to eat healthy food, avoid fatty food and exercise regularly.
