Pre-diagnostic alcohol consumption and breast cancer recurrence and mortality - results from a prospective cohort with a wide range of variation in alcohol intake
International Journal of Cancer, 05/29/2012Holm M et al.
Results for breast cancer specific mortality were also suggestive of a higher risk but were not statistically significant. In addition to being a risk factor for breast cancer, a high pre–diagnostic alcohol intake also seems to have an effect on the course of the disease. The authors could not relate the finding to a specific tumor presentation.
