Pathogenesis of Breast Cancer

  • Chapter

Abstract

It is not known when in the lifetime of a woman the initiation of breast cancer takes place, or whether a specific agent causes it. The fact that late menarche and a full-term pregnancy completed before age 24, or early full-term pregnancy, reduces the risk of breast cancer development, whereas early menarche, nulliparity and exposure to ionizing radiations at ages younger than 19 are associated with a higher breast cancer incidence [1, 2], indicates that the period encompassed between menarche and first fullterm pregnancy represents a window of high susceptibility for the initiation of breast cancer.
