Previous studies have shown that women who are diagnosed with atypical ductal hyperplasia are at a three- to five-fold increased risk of developing breast cancer.
The women were at high risk because of a personal history of breast cancer (53%), familial high risk by Gail or Claus models (42%), prior atypical ductal hyperplasia, atypical lobular hyperplasia, lobular carcinoma in situ, or atypical papilloma (3%), BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations (1%), or prior mediastinal/chest radiation therapy (1%).
