He said the older a woman gets, the higher her risk of developing breast cancer, especially after menopause.
Kayode also described age as a risk factor which he said, over 80 per cent of all female breast cancers occur among women between the age of 40 years and 50 years above.
He advised women to eat balance diet, engage in regular breastfeeding of their babies, do physical exercise and also avoid any intake of alcohol which are the causes of breast cancer.

Kayode, however, cautioned women to report any sign of breast disease or cancer to a closed medical hospital or a health consultant for appropriate medical directive and treatment. (NAN)
