IVF Won’t Raise Risk for Breast Cancer

July 19, 2016

(UPI) – Women who undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF) to boost their odds of having a baby aren’t at increased risk of breast cancer, according to Dutch researchers. Their study of more than 25,000 women found no “significant increase in the long-term risk of breast cancer among women treated with these IVF regimens.” A fertility expert believes the findings will ease patients’ concerns.
