Late age at first full-term pregnancy as a risk factor for women with malignant lymphoma

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

Women with malignant lymphoma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and Hodgkin's disease were of a significantly later age at first full-term pregnancy (AFFP) than controls without malignant disorders. The odds ratio (OR) of having the first pregnancy at 30 years of fertility was 6.4 for women with malignant lymphoma. This ratio was higher than the ratio of 3.9 in a group of breast cancer patients. A low parity in the lymphoma group enhanced the risk associated with a late AFFP.
