Breast Cancer Gene May Be Tied to Early Menopause
Date:1/29/2013

ving in the region experienced menopause by that age.

Mutations in either of the genes BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 are the most identified inherited cause of breast cancer. Women with these mutations are five times more likely to develop breast cancer than those without the mutations, according to the U.S. National Cancer Institute.

The researchers noted that more studies are needed on the link between BRCA mutations and risk for infertility. They pointed out that data on the natural age of menopause among women with these mutations is limited since many opt to undergo surgery to remove at-risk tissue, including their breasts and ovaries, after they have children.

The U.S. National Cancer Institute provides more information on the BRCA gene.
