Abstract

Objective: The prognosis of breast cancer (BC) is determined directly based on the stage of disease at the time of diagnosis. Proliferative breast lesions (PBLs) are an important risk factor for BC development. The risk of developing BC varies according to the presence of extent of proliferation in the breast lesions. We aimed to investigate the effect of BC risk factors on the PBLs in this study.
