Abstract or Summary
  • A pilot study was conducted to evaluate whether premenstrual syndrome was a risk factor for breast cancer among premenopausal women. As subjects, 54 women between the ages of 26 and 46 years, each diagnosed with breast cancer, were compared to three separate control groups, consisting of 193 female patients seen in medical offices for routine physical exams, 51 female nursing students, and 559 female graduate students. Each eligible subject was either mailed or personally given a survey questionnaire probing premenstrual and menstrual symptomatology and general descriptive characteristics. An association between premenstrual syndrome and breast cancer was evaluated by estimating exposure odds ratios and associated confidence intervals. Analysis of the data suggested that premenstrual syndrome did not pose a breast cancer risk among premenopausal women.
