Abstract:

An increased rate of breast cancer has been observed in African-American women under 50 years of age. Few epidemiologic studies of breast cancer focus explicitly on African-American women, and it is not established whether standard risk factors apply. This study seeks to determine relationships between risk factors and genetics in breast cancer etiology among pre-menopausal African-American women.
