House Call: Breast cancer risk factors

WSIL -- October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each Monday, our House Call segment will feature information about this disease.

More than 25,000 women (and men) will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017. More than 40,000 people die from the disease each year. There are several preventable risk factors associated with breast cancer. Diet, exercise and smoking all play a role. But so do genetics.
