Breast cancer protection from pregnancy starts decades later

Breast cancer risk remains elevated 20-30 years after childbirth, says a new study reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Scientists at the National Institutes of Health, along with members of the international Premenopausal Breast Cancer Collaborative Group, found that breast cancer risk increases in the years after a birth, with the highest risk of developing the disease about five years later. These  findings suggest that breast cancer protection from pregnancy may not begin until as many as 30 years after the birth of the last child.
