Abstract
B reast cancer has been a big global health issue since 1990s. Breast cancer incidence ranks first among all women cancers and continues to raise worldwide, most rapidly in low risk populations. In the past decades, thousands of medical/health/other scientists have been devoted to breast cancer research. The etiology of breast cancer, however, is not completely understood. This presentation will address the perspectives of breast cancer etiology and new research directions based on comprehensive information from molecular medicine, clinical medicine, and epidemiology of breast cancer including (1) plausibility of smoking in breast carcinogenesis; (2) physiological properties, susceptibility windows, and exposure timing of breast cells; (3) role of exogenous hormones in breast carcinogenesis; (4) biological mechanisms of synergistic interactions between smoking and exogenous hormones in breast carcinogenesis; and (5) evidence from epidemiologic studies and the fitted secular trend between smoking rate, exogenous hormone use, and breast cancer incidence in past decades.
