RIGHT NOW, YOU *DO NOT* HAVE A ONE IN EIGHT CHANCE OF BREAST CANCER
Have you heard that the average woman’s risk of breast cancer is 1 in 8? This is the risk as understood by most doctors and that I have often quoted to others.
One in eight sounds pretty scary, and I am passionate about dispelling unnecessary fear.
My mind was recently blown when I learned that this risk of 1 in 8, or about 12%, is NOT your risk right now.
It is actually your total risk over your entire lifetime if you live to be 85 years old.
