    I have to say that I do believe stress is a huge factor in my getting breast cancer. My husband and I lost our company, then our jobs and then our home in 2009. I kept telling him that one of us were going to get cancer because of all the stress. And sure enough I was diagnosed on July 23, 2010 with Stage 1B breast cancer.

      I agree stress does play a factor with breast cancer. When I was diagnosed, my AWESOME doctor had an OXY-TYPE DX, determining the make up of the tumor. When I asked about it, she explained cancer can be spread for many different reasons. The DNA chain is BROKEN in a cell. What causes this? Lots of things, one of which is stress. So, stress is not the only factor, but can be one of the factors.

    Although some studies have shown that factors such as traumatic events and losses can alter immune system functions, these studies have not provided any evidence of a direct cause-and-effect relationship between stress and breast cancer. An area currently being studied is whether or not stress reduction can improve immune response and slow progression in women diagnosed with breast cancer.

      I have read that stress in general can lead to unhealthy habits like smoking, over eating (which causes obesity), and drinking alcohol. Even if stress doesn't directly factor in, some of the habits that result from stress could be something you need to watch.
