Could Fertility Treatment Increase Breast Cancer Risk?

April 14, 2016

(BioMed Central) – The results from our study indicate that infertile women, especially those who undergo controlled ovarian stimulation, might represent a group with an increased breast cancer risk. While we believe it is important to continue monitoring these women, the observed difference in dense volume is relatively small and has only been linked to a modest increase in breast cancer risk in previous studies.
