THE MESOTHELIOMA CENTER AND ASBESTOS.COM
The cause of breast cancer is linked to a variety of external risk factors in addition to natural factors that are typically out of a person’s control. Natural risk factors include gender, age, race, and family history of breast cancer, genetic makeup and early onset of menstruation. Environmental factors may also play a role in the risk of breast cancer. Some studies have found higher rates of breast cancer among women exposed to asbestos, although the link between the two appears thin.
Asbestos is a carcinogen that has been linked conclusively to other health conditions like mesothelioma cancer, but its exact correlation to breast cancer is uncertain. Although researchers have noted an elevated incidence of breast cancer in women who have been exposed to asbestos fibers, studies have not yet determined how asbestos directly affects breast tissue.
