  1. The calculation of breast cancer risk for women with a first degree family history of ovarian cancer.

    Article - En anglais

    Recent linkage analyses demonstrate the strength of the genetic association between breast and ovarian cancer in some families.

    These findings highlight the importance of considering a woman's family history of ovarian cancer in the calculation of her risk of breast cancer.

    In this study, data on breast and ovarian cancer from the Cancer and Steroid Hormone Study, a large, population-based, case-control study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control, are used to calculate age-specific and cumulative risks of developing breast cancer for a woman with a first degree family history of ovarian cancer.
