Breast Cancer Risk Factors

Women who have a breast density of 75 percent or higher on a mammogram have Breast Cancer Risk Factors that is four to five times greater than that of women with little or no density, making mammographic breast density one of the strongest biomarkers of breast cancer risk.At the American Association for Cancer Research 101st Annual Meeting 2010, held in Washington, D.C., April 17-21, researchers will present the latest data on mammographic density and breast cancer risk.

“These abstracts strengthen the observation that high breast density is associated with increased Breast Cancer Risk, and they strengthen the hypothesis that under some conditions, reducing breast density may be associated with reduced risk for breast cancer,” said Carol J. Fabian, M.D., professor of medicine in the division of clinical oncology and director of the Breast Cancer Prevention Center at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
