Drinking Risky for Teen Girls with Breast Cancer in Family

Drinking alcohol raises theِ alreadyِ elevated risk thatِ teen girls withِ a family history ofِ breast disease haveِ of developing benign breast disease asِ young women, a newِ study shows.
Benign breast disease isِ a large class ofِ conditions thatِ canِ cause inflammatory lesions orِ pain inِ the breasts, andِ has beenِ previously identified asِ a risk factor forِ breast cancer.
Women inِ the study whoseِ mothers orِ aunts hadِ breast cancer wereِ moreِ than twiceِ asِ likely toِ develop benign breast disease asِ women withِ noِ family history, according toِ theِ study.
