Breast Cancer Threat: Cases On Rise (Video)

Saturday, May 31, 2008

The number of women developing breast cancer could rise to one in seven by 2024 unless better treatments are found and lifestyle changes made.

The alarming projections appear in a new study which reveals that 4,000 extra deaths will result if current trends continue.

The research found the risk to women who carry gene mutations which can lead to the disease has increased dramatically in the last 60 years.

One in 10 women in the UK currently develop breast cancer by the age of 80.

However, researchers fear this may increase to one in seven within the next 16 years.

Professor Gareth Evans led the study of 1,442 women who carried the high-risk genes BRCA1 and BRCA2, on behalf of the Manchester-based Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention Center.

Around one in 500 people are said to carry the gene mutations which give women an 85-90% risk of breast cancer.

The medical genetics consultant said: "This rise in the incidence of breast cancer is reflected in the general population.

"In 1984 only one in 13 women were projected to develop breast cancer in their lifetime.

"In 2004 this reached one in 10 and, if the rates rise as they are currently doing so, it is predicted that by the year 2024 one in seven to eight women will develop breast cancer by 80 years of age in the UK.

"That will translate into an extra 4,000 deaths, unless further improvements in treatments occur."

The study showed that women carrying faults in the high-risk genes born prior to 1920 only had a 7.5% chance of breast cancer by 40 years of age.

Women born after 1960 had a risk of up to 40%.

Prof Evans' research suggested the rising trend could be reversed by altering lifestyle.

He recommended women should plan families earlier, avoid long-term use of female hormones in contraceptives and HRT, and embark on a healthy lifestyle by exercising and maintaining a healthy weight.
