Can migraines reduce breast cancer risk?

SEATLE, Wash. Scientists at the /*Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center*/ in Seattle studied more than 9,000 women, half of whom had breast cancer, the other half were healthy. They were looking for a possible relationship between migraines and /*breast cancer*/ since both are related to hormones.

Migraines can be triggered by a drop in estrogen, while increased estrogen levels are known to boost breast cancer risk.

Their findings were reported in Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers and Prevention.
