Myths are believes that people have on something. Here we discuss the myths that people have on breast cancer. The first myth is that only women with a family history get the breast cancer. This is not true because a majority of the women who get the disease have no family history in fact 90 % of them.
Another myth is that no smoking and drinking, eating high fat diet and using caffeine will always make the chances of contracting this disease to zero, but these things have not been scientifically proven to work. Some situation the breast cancer cannot be prevented. Another myth is that only women in fifties get breast cancer, this is not true because it can affect a person at any age. The only thing is that it affects mostly women of that age. An injury to the breast does not necessarily cause breast cancer but a trauma to the breast may lead to detection of the breast cancer.
