Ask-the-Expert Online Conference

Question from BenNZoeysmom: Do you feel that women who have gone through IVF have an increased risk of breast cancer?
Answers - Jennifer Griggs, M.D., M.P.H. It seems that every study I see contradicts the one before. In other words, a study may come out suggesting an increase in the risk of breast cancer, and then an even better study says the association is not present.

The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Environmental Issues and Breast Cancer featured Jennifer Griggs, M.D., M.P.H.,  Sue Heffelfinger andDevra Davis answering your questions abouthow the environment can affect breast cancer risk and ways to reduce this risk.
