To gain insight into whether breast cancer tumors jointly classified by estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) status represent diseases with differing etiologies, data from a population-based case-control study of US women 20-44 years of age were analyzed. Cases included 1,556 women diagnosed between 1990 and 1992. Age- and geographic-frequency-matched controls included 1,397 women identified by random digit dialing. Heterogeneity between ER+PR+ and ER-PR- tumors was most… CONTINUE READING
