Overseas health insurance customers can take a number of steps to minimise the risk of contracting breast cancer.
Clinical nurse specialist at Breast Cancer Care Antonia Dean noted that while it is not possible to completely eliminate the chances of being diagnosed with the condition, regular exercise and a good diet can both be beneficial.
"Some factors can be influenced by a change in lifestyle choices, for example maintaining a healthy weight, exercising or limiting the amount of alcohol we drink," she remarked, adding these will also improve general health.
Data from the World Cancer Research Fund revealed that nearly half of the 47,000 new cases of breast cancer diagnosed in the UK in 2008 could have been prevented by lifestyle changes.
Ms Dean also emphasised the importance of performing regular breast examinations and visiting a doctor if any unusual changes are noticed.
Checking a family history can also give females an indication if they are likely to contract breast cancer, as in some instances it has been found to be hereditary.
