Why are breast cancer rates so high in San Francisco?



  1. 0 Votes

    Prior studies have suggested that geographic variation in US breast cancer incidence 

    relates to differences in established risk factors.  These include: older age, white 

    ethnicity, US born, late age at first birth, moderate to high consumption of alcohol, late 

    age at menopause, and use of hormone therapy.  Many of these risk factors correlate with 

    higher levels of education, income and other socioeconomic status, which census data 

    confirm to be more concentrated among SFBA residents.
