Reporting bilaterality status in first-degree relatives with breast cancer : a validity study.
The objective of this study was to validate reports on the bilaterality status of breast cancer in first-degree relatives of women with a strong family history of the disease; i.e., women with 1) two first-degree relatives who have, or have had, breast cancer, 2) one first- and one second-degree affected relative; or 3) one first-degree relative with diagnosis of breast cancer before the age of 50 years and/or bilateral breast cancer.
We were able to obtain hospital records for 94 affected relatives of 83 patients who agreed to participate in the study.
The accounts of these women were compared to the bilaterality status indicated in the hospital records of the affected relatives.
