Heritable Aspects of Dysplastic Breast Glandular Tissue (DY)

Abstract

Breast parenchymal patterns, as visible on mammograms, are determined by the relative amount of radio-dense, glandular dysplastic tissue DY). High percentages of DY are related to higher breast cancer risk. Previous studies reported heritable influences on DY of 32–67%, depending on the family relationship that was studied. depending on the family… (More)
