Methods: Collected292cases of breast X-rayradiography in our hospital from July2011to September2011,including177breast cancerpatients (breast cancer group) and115healthy individuals (control group). All selectedcases were measuring the area of the mammary gland and breast gland area of the entirebreast area as a percentage of breast density. Compare breast density differences betweenthe breast cancer group and control group,and analyze the related factors of breastdensity.Results: There is significant differencese between Breast cancer and the healthycontrol group, suggesting that the incidence of breast cancer is related with increasedbreast density. Age at menarche, age of first birth,breastfeeding history, ethnic factors arenot impact the breast density of breast cancer patients. Breast density in breast cancerpatients related withmenopausal status and body mass index (BMI). Breast density ofbreast cancer patients in premenopausal is higher than postmenopausal; Breast densitydecreased by increasing of body mass index (BMI).Conclusion: Breast density in breastcancer patients is higher than the normal population, age, body mass index affect breastdensity.
