Breast cancer risk highest two decades after childbirth finds studyAccording to new research, women are at a highest risk of breast cancer, more than two decades after having given birth. This finding comes along with another in a separate study that reveals that breast cancers occurring after childbirth are more likely to spread compared to breast cancers in women who never had children.
