About this leaflet

Some people feel anxious about something they have watched on television, or have read in the newspapers or online.

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in the UK. It most often affects women, but can also affect men. This leaflet explains:

- what we know about the main causes of breast cancer

- what you can do to reduce your risk of developing cancer.

We hope it gives you the information you need or helps you find more support.
