Although parity and age at first pregnancy are among the most known extrinsic factors that modulate breast cancer risk, their impact on the biology of subsequent breast cancer has never been explored in depth. Recent data suggest that pregnancy-induced tumor protection is different according to breast cancer subtypes, with parity and young age at first pregnancy being associated with a marked reduction in the risk of developing luminal subtype but not triple negative breast cancer. In this study, we investigated the imprint of parity and age at first pregnancy on the pattern of somatic mutations, somatic copy number alterations, transcriptomic profiles, and tumor immune microenvironment by assessing tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes TILs levels of subsequent breast cancer.
Cancer begins when cells in a part of the body start to grow out of control. There are many kinds of cancer, but they all start because of out-of-control growth of abnormal cells. To learn more about how cancer forms and grows, see What Is Cancer?

Nevertheless, this variable displays one of the highest risk ratios associated to breast cancer outcome. Despite recent identification of genetic mutations associated with familial aggregation of these tumors, mainly at BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, knowledge on the interaction between environmental agents in these families remains quite unclear. Further we estimated the median age of the onset of breast cancer among four generations.
When we hear about some of the causes of cancer, it may seem as if cancer is a recent ailment.
