  1. Incidence of breast cancer in women with fibroadenoma.

    Article - En anglais

    There is a general agreement that fibroadenoma is associated with a certain increase in breast cancer risk, but the risk estimates appear heterogeneous according to various studies.

    To provide further quantitative and population-based estimates of breast cancer risk in women with histologically confirmed fibroadenomas, we linked data of 1,461 incident cases of fibroadenoma (median age, 37 years) to the Cancer Registry of the Swiss Canton of Vaud (about 600,000 inhabitants) over the period 1977-1991.

    After exclusion of 57 synchronous breast neoplasma, a total of 17 cases of breast cancer were observed vs. 10.9 expected.

    (standardised incidence ratio, SIR, 1.6 ; 90% confidence interval : 1.1-2.1).
