A very well known facts in premenopausal women is that risk of breast cancer increases with increased height, yet decreases with increasing weight and BMI. Although the evidence is not strong, a counter-intuitive positive relationship between central adiposity and premenopausal breast cancer risk is emerging. In post-menopausal women an increased risk in breast cancer has been found for all anthropometric measures: height, weight, BMI, measures of central adiposity (waist:hip ratio and waist circumference) and weight gain, with breast size being a possible additional risk factor.
