Breast cancer (BC) is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide, mostly occurred in United States andWestern Europe. Scientists progressed in diagnosis and treatments for BC, contributing to the significant drop in the mortality rate. However, malignancy still accounts for more than 500,000 deaths annually worldwide. A major risk factor contributing to the breast cancer burden is mammographic density (MD) in breast tissue. In fact, more than 50% of women under 50 years of age exhibit high MD. Several studies revealed that women with high breast density have a 4-6-fold increased risk of breast cancer compared to women with less breast density. This review highlights some natural substances that may help in the prevention of breast cancer. Modern data suggest that women with high breast density experience significant clinical benefits when treated with a balanced composition including boswellic acid, betaine, and Myo-inositol. Without any side effects, this therapy is a valuable natural solution to ameliorate high breast density cases,preventing breast cancer and contributing to pain reduction.
