There are several risk factors that have been identified as characteristics that can potentially increase a person’s likelihood of developing breast cancer. Risk factors do not necessarily cause breast cancer, however, and some people with identified risk factors never develop breast cancer. In other cases, an individual that is diagnosed may have no known risk factors.
