However, they seem obvious risk with increasing body mass index in childhood, waist circumference in adolescence and height.
The findings indicate, there are differences in risk factors between women with a history of breast cancer and those who did not.
Height associated with breast cancer risk. And some data showing explosive growth led to a higher risk of developing cancer later in life. Obviously, it's not something we can control. But if we can understand what is going on hormones and processes in the body, and the role of physical activity and diet, we may be able to modify some of the accumulated risk of early breast cancer.
