Out of some 140,000 new cases of breast cancer in the United States, one out of 10 (10%) have a lifetime risk of developing breast cancer (1), and only 25% of women developing breast cancer present identifiable risk factors (2). Thus, in majority of women the causative factor(s), and therefore relative risk for developing breast cancer remains unknown.
