Women born to older mothers have a higher risk of developing breast cancer
Date:2/6/2012

A new study analyses the influence that certain birth and infancy characteristics have on mammographic density an important indicator of breast cancer risk. The results reveal that women born to mothers aged over 39 years and women who were taller and thinner than the average girl prior to puberty have a higher breast density. This brings with it an increased risk of developing breast cancer.

Published in the Breast Cancer Research and Treatment journal, the study was conducted on a sample of 3,574 women aged between 45 and 68 years. It was assisted by the screening programmes of seven of Spain's autonomous communities (Aragon, the Balearic Islands, Castilla-Len, Catalonia, Galicia, Navarra and Valencia).

The results reveal that women born to older mothers (above 39 years) and those who were taller and thinner than average before puberty are more prone to have a higher mammographic density as an adult.

Virginia Lope, lead author of the study and researcher at the National Centre for Epidemiology at the ISCIII, explains that "accumulated exposure to hormones along with growth factors in the earlier stages of life when the breasts begin to develop both condition breast tissue composition and influence the probability of developing a tumour as an adult."

A powerful biomarker

During the 2010 annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), various studies were presented that support the results of other studies published a few years earlier. Such research showed that women with a mammographic density of 75% o
