Abstract
Breast cancer (BC) is the second most widespread and the utmost common cancer among females population in the world. It has foremost influence on women health. Deaths from BC account for 1.6% of female deaths every year. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of BC, also to determine and quantify the associated risk factors for BC among Pakistani females. We carried out an observational case-control study for the present research. The study includes 105 BC patients and a group of 105 controls (healthy women). Univariate and multivariate logistic regression analysis along with Pearson’s Chi-square was applied to determine and quantify the association between risk factor and BC risk. In multivariate models, environmental area and exposure to X-Ray radiations were found to be significantly associated with BC risk (p=0.012, 0.03). Female with a positive family history of BC were at higher risk for developing BC. An early age at menarche was a strong risk factor for developing BC. Age less than 12 years increased the risk 2.551 times and an older age at menarche was associated with a significant reduction in the risk of BC. Menopausal status and age at last pregnancy were also risk factor of BC. We may conclude that the breast cancer is highly prevalent in the local population and its risk increases with X-ray radiation exposure, living area and habits, family history, early age of monarch and menopausal status.
