    Scientists still don't know what causes breast cancer only that certain factors, such as obesity or drinking too much alcohol may increase its risk.

    Yes it is true that we yet to know exactly what causes breast cancer, we do know that certain risk factors are linked to the disease. A risk factor is something that affects your chance of getting a disease such as cancer. Different cancers have different risk factors. Some risk factors, such as smoking, drinking, and diet are linked to things a person does. Others, like a person's age, race, or family history, can't be changed.
