Birth weight, childhood body mass index, and height in relation to mammographic density and breast cancer: a register-based cohort study

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal article

High breast density, a strong predictor of breast cancer may be determined early in life. Childhood anthropometric factors have been related to breast cancer and breast density, but rarely simultaneously. We examined whether mammographic density (MD) mediates an association of birth weight, childhood body mass index (BMI), and height with the risk of breast cancer.
