 1) Family History Of Breast Cancer May Increase Risk Of Prostate
    Cancer
    [08/25/98; Doctor's Guide]

ATLANTA, GA -- Aug. 25, 1998 -- A new study from researchers at
the American Cancer Society suggests that men with mothers or
sisters who have had breast cancer may have an increased risk
of dying from prostate cancer. 

According to the study, risk of fatal prostate cancer appeared
to be higher in men younger than 65 who had a relative diagnosed
with breast cancer before age 50.  Risk was also higher among
Jewish men with breast cancer family history than among non-Jewish
men.  The findings are reported in the September 1998 issue of
Epidemiology.
