Decreased breast density cuts breast cancer risk

Posted on April 21st, 2010 by

Researchers from the Mayo Clinic campus in Minnesota found a 28 percent reduced risk of developing breast cancer in women whose breasts decreased in density, as seen from two different mammograms taken an average of six years apart, compared to women whose breast density did not change.

 

Dr. Celine Vachon, study’s lead investigator, said that two measures of breast density may, therefore, provide additional information for assessing breast cancer risk.
