What Guys Need to Know

Guys! Why is this information important for you?

1 in 9 girls will develop breast cancer at some point in their lifetime – so chances are someone you know will be affected by this disease in the future. And don’t forget: while rare, men can get breast cancer too, but girls are 100x more at risk.

There’s no known single cause of breast cancer – but we do know that certain factors (likely in combination) can increase the chances of developing the disease.

Women can’t change some factors that increase their chances of breast cancer:

But there are other risk factors that are controllable, including:

Smoking and exposure to second-hand smoke The chemicals in cigarette smoke can actually increase girls’ risk of breast cancer at a younger age.
Diet A healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables reduces the risk of breast cancer
Physical Activity Keeping active helps maintain a healthy weight and reduces the risk of breast cancer.
Alcohol Intake Avoiding alcohol reduces the risk of breast cancer.

Show You Care!

Respect the girls around you by not exposing them to second-hand smoke!

  • Hang out with girls in smoke-free areas.
  • Ask people not to smoke around you and your friends.
  • If you smoke, think about quitting. Do it for yourself, and all the girls you know.
