New York: Women whose menstrual periods start at a young age are less likely to survive ovarian cancer than their peers whose periods start later, new research shows. Similarly, women who have more menstrual cycles over their lifetime also have worse survival.
The results also indicate that patients with the highest number of lifetime menstrual cycles were 67 percent more likely to die during follow-up than were those with the lowest number of cycles.The 15-year survival rates for women with the most lifetime menstrual cycles and those with the fewest were 33.3 and 56.7 percent, respectively."The significance of this paper is in suggesting new research directions, not in any immediate treatment changes," Dr. Mary B. Daly, an editorial board member of Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers, and Prevention, said in a statement.
