Breast cancer is a disease that impacts one in eight women and well as one in 880 men. Lots of research has been conducted into treatments for breast cancer, but there are ways that you can lower your risk of getting it through certain lifestyle changes. St. Luke's Hospital surgeon Rhiana Menen joins Idaho Matters during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to explain how diet, exercise and habitual choices impact your chance of getting the disease.
