Abstract

Bone Mineral Density (BMD) and Breast Density (BD) are markers of lifetime accumulative exposure to estrogen and has been associated with increased of breast cancer risk. Nonetheless the actual associations is still debatable. Systematic searches on MEDLINE and CINAHL were conducted according to PRISMA 2009 to assess the association between BMD, BD and the risk of breast cancer. A total of nine articles were included for a comprehensive evaluations and comparisons. Two studies mentioned strong positive association between BMD and BD for the prediction of breast cancer in perimenopausal women whistle four studies concluded negative associations in postmenopausal. The findings could be used as a potential additional information for breast cancer screening.
