Abstract

 Background: BREAST CANCER is the most frequent cancer in women According to Iranian Ministry of Health, Medical and Education, incidence of BREAST CANCER was 5981 case from 1384. The age adjusted incidence rate was 24 per 100,000 in 2006.Materials and Methods: In this case-control study, one hundred and ten patients with BREAST CANCER (ages 20-60 yrs) were compared with one hundred and ten age- and sex-matched women hospitalized for other reasons. Briefly cases were women with insitu or invasive, histological confirmed BREAST CANCER diagnosed no more than 1 year before the interview and with no previous diagnoses of cancer at other sites. Controls were women with no history of cancer admitted to Imam Hospital for acute, non- neoplastic, non- gynecological condition, unrelated to hormonal or digestive tract disease or to long- term modification of diet or hospital visitor. Odds ratios were calculated and Mantel-Haenzel and Logistic regression methods after adjustment for potential confounders were used for statistical analysis.Results: Odds ratios [with 95 percent confidence intervals] for weight, height, BMI & waist to hip were 1.06 (0.46-2.46), 1.25 (0.52-2.99), 1 (0.43-2.29), 1.53 (0.62-3.74) in non-menopause and 0.17 (0.02-1.08), 0.2 (0.7-2.02), 0.28 (0.04-1.98), 1.0990.37- 44.7) in MENOPAUSE women.Conclusion: The present study suggests that weight, height, BMI and waist/hip aren’t premenopause or MENOPAUSE risk factors of BREAST CANCER.
