Smoking raises risk of most common type of breast cancer
Smoking raises risk of most common type of breast cancer (February 14, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Seattle - A new report published in Cancer finds that smoking raises risk of the most common kind of breast cancer. Researchers studied nearly 1,000 patients diagnosed with estrogen receptor positive breast cancer (the most common subtype of the disease), as well as nearly 200 with triple-negative breast cancer and over 900 cancer-free controls. Participants were between 20 and 44 years old. Results showed that women who were current or recent smokers who had smoked a pack a day for at least a decade were at 60% increased risk of developing estrogen receptor positive breast cancer.
