Breast Cancer Relation To Menstruation

With breast cancer awareness month around the corner, it is important to gain awareness about it and have your yearly mammogram done.

The interval between breast development and the first full-term pregnancy is often lengthier in girls who begin menstruating earlier than in females who begin menstruating later. Breast tissue is often young, hyperactive, and highly susceptible to hormone impacts during this time.

Breast cancer risk is higher for women who first began menstruation (had periods) before 12 in later life.

A woman has been exposed to oestrogen and progesterone more frequently throughout her life the longer she has periods. A higher chance of breast cancer developing later in life is linked to these factors.
