Gain de poids à l'âge adulte et densité mammaire
|Authors:||Soguel Alexander, Ludivine|
|Abstract:||Adiposity is a known risk factor for breast cancer and weight gain during adulthood also seems to play a role. In the breast, adipose tissue can be studied through breast density features. Indeed, absolute non-dense area reflects breast fat and percent density, one of the strongest risk factor for breast cancer, reflects the proportion of fibroglandular tissue. The first objective of this dissertation was to evaluate the association between weight gain during adulthood and three density features: percent density, absolute dense and non-dense areas, among 1435 women recruited at screening mammography. The second objective was to present a consolidated text of the interrelation between adiposity, breast density and breast cancer risk and to discuss it in an epidemiological and biological point of view.|
