Learn About Breast Cancer

Whether you’re worried about developing breast cancer, making decisions about treatment, or trying to stay well after treatment, we can help. Find detailed information in our Detailed Guide, or get a shorter, simpler version in our Overview Guide.

Breast Cancer Prevention and Early Detection

Staying at a healthy weight, being physically active, and limiting how much alcohol you drink can help reduce your risk of breast cancer. Regular screening can often find breast cancer early when treatments are more likely to be successful.
