PURPOSE: This natural history study is looking at changes in breast density and gathering health information over time to assess breast cancer risk in women with breast cancer and in healthy women.
- Determine the mammographic density (MD) longitudinal change trajectory in women with breast cancer and in healthy female participants to assess within-individual MD longitudinal change and breast cancer risk.
- Determine whether these patients or healthy participants manifest different patterns of within-individual change in MD and evaluate predictors of across-individual differences.
- Determine whether the developmental profile of MD differs systematically between these patients and healthy participants.
OUTLINE: This is a prospective, retrospective, controlled study. Patients and healthy participants are frequency-matched by age (± 2 years) and ethnicity.
- Questionnaire: Patients and healthy participants complete a self-administered questionnaire providing detailed information on breast cancer risk factors, including demographics, behavioral and lifestyle factors, reproductive history, family history of breast cancer, comorbidities, medication and hormone replacement therapy use, and breast cancer screening history. This information is then cross-validated with documented data abstracted from medical records to provide a longitudinal and historical framework for assessing individual risk.
- Mammographic density (MD) assessment: Patients and healthy participants are evaluated for patterns of longitudinal change in MD and subsequent breast cancer risk by retrospective review of screening mammograms performed prior to breast cancer diagnosis.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 350 patients and 350 healthy participants will be accrued for this study.

Laboratory testing and diagnostic imaging services offered to consumers outside of the patient-physician relationship.
Testing or screening required by federal, state, or local law or other agencies for the diagnosis of specified conditions. It is usually limited to specific populations such as categories of health care providers, members of the military, and prisoners or to specific situations such as premarital examinations or donor screening.
Use of ultrasound for imaging the breast. The most frequent application is the diagnosis of neoplasms of the female breast.
