A microscopic change in breast tissue could help doctors identify women at greater risk of developing breast cancer, according to a US study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (February 11). In a review of benign breast biopsies from nearly 1,400 women, researchers from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston found that those with a microscopic abnormality called a radial scar were twice as likely to develop the disease. Radial scars, which comprise a core of scar tissue surrounded by ducts, are sometimes detectable by mammography and have been linked to breast cancer in earlier studies.
