Upsetting life events like bereavement 'not linked to cancer' finds Breast Cancer Now Generations Study



media

 The finding comes from the Breast Cancer Now Generations Study, which looked into the causes of breast cancer, following more than 113,000 British women for 40 years.

  • Stress or an upsetting life event is unlikely to increase the risk of breast cancer, a study has found.
  • Women with the disease often think it was caused by stress - but researchers found no link between the two. 
  • And going through a difficult period such as a bereavement or divorce does not increase the odds.
