Nondense mammographic area and risk of breast cancer


The mechanisms underlying the strong association between percentage dense area on a mammogram and the risk of breast cancer are unknown. We investigated separately the absolute dense area and the absolute nondense area on mammograms in relation to breast cancer risk. We conducted a nested case-control study on prediagnostic mammographic density measurements… (More)
