The common causes of breast cancer include increased age, body weight and genetics, lifestyle and environmental factors around the individual.

As such no cause is directly linked with the occurrence of the breast cancer but there is a sufficient proof that some women are at greater risk of developing breast cancer.

Increasing age, family history of breast cancer, genetic mutation mainly BRCA1 and BRCA2, environmental factors and lifestyle are some of the risk factors of breast cancer.
