According to Vinay Aggarwal, Internal medicine Physician, cedarsSinai Hospital, Los Angeles, breast cancer is genetic. If you have any family history of breast cancer then you have strong chances to have the disease. The genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 are responsible for such kind of breast cancer. Another reason for breast cancer is the level of oestrogen. If menopause occurs after the age of 50 in woman, it increases the risk of developing breast cancer. Woman who exercise have a lower risk of developing breast cancer. The fat deposits in woman convert testosterone into oestrogen, resulting in oestrogen level disturbance. This also leads to breast cancer.
