The risk of developing breast cancer is influenced by a range of factors such as: growing older, strong family history, being overweight, drinking alcohol and breast density.

Whilst there is currently no reliable way to measure breast density for breastscreening mammograms, research is underway to find new validated, evidence- based methods of screening dense breasts.

Regardless of density, mammography remains the best breast cancer screening test for women aged from 50-74.
