The management of high-risk benign breast disease (BBD) is changing because of improvements in radiological and pathological analysis. We sought to determine the current practice recommendations of breast health professionals in managing patients with high-risk BBD. We surveyed members of the Canadian Society of Surgical Oncology, Canadian Association of General Surgeons and Canadian Association of Radiologists. The survey contained demographic and case-based questions concerning management of high-risk ben...
Breast cancer patients have a higher mortality risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than women from the general population. CVD risk may increase significantly in postmenopausal women with early-stage breast cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate risk factors for CVD in postmenopausal breast cancer survivors.
Breast cancer occurs in about 1% of men, but the number of men receiving a diagnosis is increasing. Data on male breast cancer (MBC) is limited, and treatment for men is based primarily on treatments used for women. However, some argue that breast cancer in men is a different disease than breast cancer in women. Multiple risk factors, including those with genetic and environmental origins, affect the likelihood of men receiving a breast cancer diagnosis. This article discusses types of MBC, risk factors, tr...
High alcohol consumption and physical inactivity are known breast cancer risk factors. However, whether the association between these lifestyle factors and breast cancer is modified by a woman's additional breast cancer risk factors has never been studied. Therefore, a population-based prospective cohort study of 57,654 Swedish women aged 40-74 years, including 957 breast cancer cases, was performed. Alcohol consumption and physical activity were measured with validated web-based self-report questionnaire...
Breast cancer (BC) risk assessment models are statistical estimates based on patient characteristics. We developed a gene expression assay to assess BC risk using benign breast biopsy tissue.
Breast cancer is a multifactorial disease and its etiology is linked to multiple risk factors. There are shreds of controversial evidence that exposure to organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) are important in the etiology of breast cancer. The present study aimed to determine the circulating levels of OCPs in patients with breast tumors in Southeastern of Iran. This case-control study included 27 patients with malignant breast tumors (MBT), 31 patients with benign breast tumors (BBT), and 27 healthy women as a ...
In patients treated with cardiotoxic chemotherapies, the presence of cardiovascular risk factors and previous cardiac disease have been strongly correlated to the onset of cardiotoxicity. The influence of overweight and obesity as risk factors in the development of treatment-related cardiotoxicity in breast cancer (BC) was recently suggested. However, due to meta-analysis design, it was not possible to take into account associated cardiac risk factors or other classic risk factors for anthracycline (antineo...
Previous gene-environment interaction studies of breast cancer risk have provided sparse evidence of interactions. Using the largest available dataset to date, we performed a comprehensive assessment of potential effect modification of 205 common susceptibility variants by 13 established breast cancer risk factors, including replication of previously reported interactions.
Elevated anxiety and breast cancer worry can impede mammographic screening and early breast cancer detection. Genetic advances and risk models make personalized breast cancer risk assessment and communication feasible, but it is unknown whether such communication of risk affects anxiety and disease-specific worry. We studied the effect of a personalized breast cancer screening intervention on risk perception, anxiety and breast cancer worry.
Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS) is a rare autosomal dominant cancer predisposition syndrome with exceptionally high lifetime cancer risks, caused primarily by germline TP53 variants. Early-onset breast cancer is the most common cancer in women with LFS. Associations between female reproductive factors and breast cancer risk have been widely studied in the general population and BRCA1/2 mutation carriers but not in LFS. We evaluated whether reproductive factors are associated with breast cancer in LFS. Questionn...
Bragatston study protocol: a multicentre cohort study on automated quantification of cardiovascular calcifications on radiotherapy planning CT scans for cardiovascular risk prediction in patients with breast cancer.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is an important cause of death in breast cancer survivors. Some breast cancer treatments including anthracyclines, trastuzumab and radiotherapy can increase the risk of CVD, especially for patients with pre-existing CVD risk factors. Early identification of patients at increased CVD risk may allow switching to less cardiotoxic treatments, active surveillance or treatment of CVD risk factors. One of the strongest independent CVD risk factors is the presence and extent of coronary...
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis has become routine for patients undergoing most operations, but it remains controversial for breast operations due to perceived low risk of VTE. There is limited evidence to support routine or extended VTE prophylaxis in breast surgery. We investigated the benefits and risks of the Caprini risk stratification tool and corresponding prevention program, including extended prophylaxis for high-risk groups, in patients undergoing operations for benign and malignant breas...
Demands for genetic counseling with BRCA1/2 examination have markedly increased. Accordingly, the incidence of uninformative results on BRCA1/2 mutation status has also increased. Because most patients examined for BRCA1/2 mutation have a high risk of hereditary breast and/or ovarian cancer, many patients suffer psychological distress even when the BRCA1/2 result is negative. We compared oncological outcomes between BRCA1/2-negative breast cancer with high risk of hereditary breast and/or ovarian cancer and...
Breast cancer is one of the most common malignant cancers among females worldwide. This complex disease is not caused by a single gene, but resulted from multi-gene interactions, which could be represented by biological networks. Network modules are composed of genes with significant similarities in terms of expression, function and disease association. Therefore, the identification of disease risk modules could contribute to understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying breast cancer. In this paper, an...
The incidence of breast cancer across the world has been on the rise in recent decades. Because identified risk factors can only explain a relatively small portion of the cases, environmental exposure to organic pollutants is suspected to play a role in breast cancer etiology. Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are among the most abundant pollutants, and the impact of their exposure on breast cancer risk has been extensively studied in recent decades. However, the results of most epidemiologic studies do not ...
Ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast (DCIS) is considered to be a non-obligate precursor of invasive breast cancer (IBC). This suggests that risk factors for DCIS should be a subset of those for IBC. To this end, we investigated whether demographic, lifestyle, and reproductive factors that have been linked to IBC risk are also associated with DCIS risk. This study was conducted in 263,788 women aged 40-69 years at enrolment into the UK Biobank population-based cohort. Information on demographic, reproduct...
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a very common liver disorder in Western countries. As of late, it has been found to be prevalent in Asia as well. It is a benign disease unless it develops into necroinflammation and fibrosis. This study was proposed to determine the prevalence and risk factors of sonography-detected NAFLD among Malaysian adults in Klang Valley, West Malaysia.
To highlight the importance of quantitative breast arterial calcifications (BAC) assessment for an effective stratification of cardiovascular (CV) risk in women, for whom current preventive strategies are inadequate. BAC, easily detectable on mammograms, are associated with CV disease and represent a potential imaging biomarker for CV disease prevention in women.
Male breast cancer is a rare malignancy. Due to low prevalence and limited data to support male breast cancer screening, there are currently no recommendations for image-based screening in asymptomatic men and few recommendations for men at high risk for breast cancer. However, symptomatically diagnosed cancers in men are typically advanced, suggesting that earlier detection may improve outcomes. In this article we briefly review the risk factors for male breast cancer, and discuss the potential benefits an...
Breast cancer is considered to result from a combination of genetic and lifestyle-related factors, but the degree to which an overall healthy lifestyle may attenuate the impact of multiple genetic variants on invasive breast cancer risk remains equivocal.
Male breast cancer (MBC) is a rare and understudied disease. There is limited evidence on association between environmental and occupational agents and MBC. Some similarities in risk factors may be shared with female breast cancer. We evaluated solvents, metals, exhaust gases and other agents in relation to MBC within the large Nordic Occupational Cancer Study (NOCCA).
Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare metastasizing pulmonary disease that shares some clinical, cellular, and molecular similarities with metastatic breast cancer to lung. LAM cells have been identified circulating in various body fluids of patients and, intriguingly, diverse evidence indicates that these cells may originate from a different organ to the lung. Following on from these observations, we hypothesized the existence of a common risk basis between LAM and breast cancer, and suggested increased...
Microvascular breast reconstruction is a complex procedure that can be associated with high complication rates. Although a number of individual predictors of perioperative complications have been identified, few studies have explored interaction between risk factors. Understanding the synergistic effects of multiple risk factors is central to accurate and personalized preoperative risk prediction.
Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis is a rare relapsing benign inflammatory breast disease with unknown etiology. Its clinical features and imaging signs may mimic inflammatory breast cancer or some other inflammatory breast disease. This may interfere with correct and timely diagnosis and thus impose an additional burden on the costs of diagnosis and therapy, as well as patient anxiety. We aimed to characterize the imaging findings of this disease and introduce two new imaging signs.
Radiation therapy for breast cancer is associated with increased risk of a second primary contralateral breast cancer, but the genetic factors modifying this association are not well understood.
