Researchers surveyed nearly 7,000 girls when they were ages 9 to 15 and again twice when they were ages 18 to 27, and found that girls with relatives diagnosed with breast cancer were more than twice as likely to develop benign breast disease than those without a family history of breast cancer. The study in the journal Cancer also found alcohol consumption further increased the risk of benign breast disease in girls with a family history of breast cancer.
