About risk factors:
Risk factors for Blastomycosis are factors that do not seem
to be a direct cause of the disease,
but seem to be associated in some way.
Having a risk factor for Blastomycosis
makes the chances
of getting a condition higher but does
not always lead to Blastomycosis.

or having a protective factor does not necessarily
guard you against getting Blastomycosis.
For general information and a list of risk factors,
see the risk center.
