Methods: We studied African American women (97 breast cancer cases and 102 controls) accrued through a population-based, casecontrol study in the Washington, DC metropolitan area during 1997 and 1998. Plasma lipid levels were measured using enzymatic methods. Logistic regressions (adjusted for age, age at menarche, parity, previous alcohol consumption, and education) were used to explore the associations between lipid levels and breast cancer.

Serum lipids and breast cancer risk: a cohort study of 5,207 Danish women
TLDR
Investigation in a cohort of 5,207 Danish women found an inverse association was found between serum high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and risk of breast cancer, which was not changed by adjustment for potential confounders such as social class, age at menarche and menopause, number of full-term pregnancies, body mass index, or alcohol and coffee consumption.
Serum high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, metabolic profile, and breast cancer risk.
TLDR
Low HDL-C, as part of the metabolic syndrome, is associated with increased postmenopausal breast cancer risk and is confined to women in the heavier subgroup.
HDL-cholesterol and incidence of breast cancer in the ARIC cohort study.
TLDR
Results of the study suggest that low HDL-cholesterol among premenopausal women may be a marker of increased breast cancer risk.

TLDR
Although many breast cancer risk factors are associated with high LDL-C, the relationship between breast cancer and HDL-C was independent of other factors evaluated.

TLDR
The hypothesis that low serum HDL-C might reflect an unfavorable hormonal profile with, in particular, increased levels of estrogens is supported and gives further clues to biomarkers of breast cancer risk especially in overweight and obese women.
Serum High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol and Breast Cancer Risk by Menopausal Status, Body Mass Index, and Hormonal Receptor in Korea
TLDR
It is suggested that higher level of HDL-C may reduce breast cancer risk among premenopausal women, and that association among LDL-C, TG, and breast cancer may be modified by receptor status.
The association between lipid profiles and breast cancer among Taiwanese women
TLDR
It is demonstrated that higher VLDL-C and lower apoA-I values were significantly associated with breast cancer, with a greater association between apOA- I values and the development of breast cancer than for HDL-C values.
Risk of breast cancer in relation to blood lipids: a prospective study of 31,209 Norwegian women
TLDR
No association between breast cancer risk and blood lipids was found in the total population, nor when the data were divided into those diagnosed before or after the age of 50 as a dividing line between pre- and postmenopausal diagnosis.
HDL-cholesterol and breast cancer: a joint study in northern Italy and southern France.
TLDR
The results indicate that high HDL-C levels should be especially checked in women aged > or = 60 years, or in premenopausal women presenting a low BMI, or on postmenopausalWomen with an early menopause.
Dietary patterns and breast cancer risk in women participating in the Black Women's Health Study.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the prudent dietary pattern may protect against breast cancer in some black women.
