The test results obtained breast cancer is influenced by a history of hereditary breast cancer (b=0.17, p=0.001); menopause age (b=0.17, p=0.001); family planning history (b=0.11, p=0.014); parity (b=0.08, p=0.031); age (b=0.21, p=0.001); income (b=0.21, p=0.001). Parity was influenced by income (b=0.45, p <0.001). The age of menopause was influenced by a history of hereditary breast cancer (b= 0.31, p <0.001); family planning history (b=0.13, p=0.13); and age (b=0.10, p=0.01).
