The relationship between family history of breast, ovarian and endometrial cancer and risk of breast cancer was analysed using data from a case-control study of breast cancer conducted in the greater Milan area, Northern Italy.
The cases studied were 3415 women (median age 52 years, range 23-74) who had histologically confirmed breast cancer diagnosed within the year preceding the interview.
The controls were 2916 women (median age 54 years; range 21-74) in hospital for a spectrum of acute illnesses excluding gynaecological, hormonal or neoplastic conditions.
A total of 375 cases (11.0%) and 128 controls (4.4%) reported a history of breast cancer in first degree relatives.
