These people have a very high lifetime risk for breast and ovarian cancer, depending on the portion of the proteins where the mutation occurs.

Instead of a 12 percent lifetime risk of breast cancer, women with one of these genes have a risk of approximately 60 percent.

In more recent years, research has indicated the impact of diet and other behaviors on breast cancer. These additional risk factors include a high-fat diet, alcohol intake, obesity, and environmental factors such as tobacco use, radiation, endocrine disruptors and shiftwork.
