Several studies have found that daughters born to older mothers have an elevated risk of breast cancer, and an endocrine hypothesis, among others, has been developed to explain these findings.
Three recent studies have failed to find a consistent maternal age effect, indicating a need for further exploration of this issue.
We used Utah breast cancer records linked to genealogical records to investigate maternal and paternal age and other maternal reproductive factors in relationship to the daughter's risk of breast cancer.
The study group consisted of 2414 breast cancer case patients and 9138 individually matched control subjects.
