Abstract

The incidence of breast cancer in Denmark has increased about 2-3% every year in the past decades. In this review the established risk factors for the disease are presented and the changes over time in these factors are described. It is concluded that a large part of the rise in incidence can be explained by changes in established risk factors. The potential measures for prevention of the disease seem to be changes in birth patterns and and increased focus on obesity and alcohol use.
