Scandinavian breast cancer symposium. Porvoo (FIN), 1991/06/03.
The associations of breast cancer risk with height and body mass index have been examined in 291 cases of breast cancer that occurred among 25967 Norwegian women during a mean follow-up of approximately 14 years (range 12-16 years).
There was an overall increased risk of breast cancer with increasing body height, and the relative risk of women in the fourth quartile of height (mean=170 cm) was 1.43 (95% confidence limits, 1.18-1.73) compared to women in the lowest quartile (mean=155 cm), after adjusting for age, parity, age at first birth, and county of residence.
