Fact of the day : Biopsy for atypical hyperplasia and risk of breast cancer


Women who have had breast biopsies in the recent past, that showed atypical hyperplasia, are at increased risk of breast cancer in the future. This is because of the changes in the breast that prompted the biopsies and not the biopsy itself, according to the Gail model of breast cancer risk assessment.

Moreover, high breast density (due to high fat diet and obesity) - individualised and as a modifiable risk factor itself, in combination with proliferative benign breast disease, increase the risk of cancer, but is relatively uncommon.
