Lower age of first childbirth, compared to the average age of 24, having more children (about 7% lowered risk per child), and breastfeeding (4.3% per breastfeeding year, with an average relative risk around 0.7) have all been correlated to lowered breast cancer risk in premenopausal women, but not postmenopausal women, in large studies. Together they form a unique fingerprint. It is estimatedthat womenhaving theirfirst child whenagedunder 18yearshaveonly aboutone-third the breast cancer risk ofthose whosefirst birth is delayeduntiltheage of35yearsormore. eCollection 2018.

Conclusion: This matched analysis of a large number of BRCA mutation carriers suggests that age at first birth has little influence on BRCA1 or BRCA2 breast cancer risk.".  |  Estimating the risk of breast cancer in relation to the interval since last term pregnancy. The extra risk is estimated to be around 3% relative increase in risk for each year of delay. It is estimated that women having their first child when aged under 18 years have only about one-third the breast cancer risk of those whose first birth is delayed until the age of 35 years or more. Dunphy KA, Black AL, Roberts AL, Sharma A, Li Z, Suresh S, Browne EP, Arcaro KF, Ser-Dolansky J, Bigelow C, Troester MA, Schneider SS, Makari-Judson G, Crisi GM, Jerry DJ. Nulliparity was assoclated with a 30% increase in risk compared with parous women, and for every 2 births, the risk was reduced by about 16%.

A similar effect has not yet been reported among women who carry an inherited BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation. A positive association between mammographic density and breast cancer risk was evident in every group defined by parity and age at first birth (OR per doubling of percent mammographic density ranged between 1.20 and 1.39). -, Lab Invest. Results from epidemiologic studies on age at last birth (ALB) and the risk of developing breast cancer were inconsistent. 2018 Jan 16;13(1):e0191333. Epidemiol Rev. Thus, we undertook a case–control study of women with a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation to study the effects of age at first full-term birth matched for other reproductive factors. Inter-Individual Variation in Response to Estrogen in Human Breast Explants. Age at first full-term birth and breast cancer risk in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers. It is estimated that women having their first child when aged under 18 years have only about one-third the breast cancer risk of those whose first birth is delayed until the age of 35 years or more.  |  Early age at first birth, increasing parity, and tamoxifen use are related to long-term lifetime reduction in breast-cancer risk.

When breast cells are made during adolescence, they are immature and very active until your first full-term pregnancy. In all areas studied, a striking Increasing parity was associated with a pronounced decrease in the risk of breast cancer with each additional birth conferring a 10 percent risk reduction (odds ratio 0.90 [95% CI 0.88-0.91]). It confirmed that low parity and late age at first birth are significant and independent determinants of breast-cancer risk. The present findings contradict recent claims that age at last birth has a stronger effect than age at first birth on breast cancer risk. -, Breast Cancer Res Treat.

There were 2,295 matched pairs of women with a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation included in the final analysis. eCollection 2018. Women who gave birth to their first child before age 21 years had a relative risk of 0.80, with higher cancer risks associated with later age at first birth. Findings were similar in the analysis limited to cases who were diagnosed with breast cancer prior to age 45. Cummings P, Weiss NS, McKnight B, Stanford JL.
