In the section entitled “Risk factors for breast cancer” in the 2013 edition, a decrease in breast cancer risk due to obesity in premenopausal women was determined to be probable. However, a large-scale pooled analysis in Japanese women reported in 2014 showed a significant increase in breast cancer risk in premenopausal women with a high body mass index. Due to this report, the description has been changed to “obesity may increase the risk of breast cancer in premenopausal women” in the 2015 edition. Body mass in Asian women might have opposite effects on breast cancer compared to that in Western women.
In the section entitled “Risk assessment...
