GPs should consider childbirth as a risk factor for breast cancer


Scene Hospice bed circa 2060. Q So Mrs X I see you are lying here on your own? A Yes my husband died 2 years ago and we decided in 2019 not to have children based on a breast cancer study that showed that childbirth increased the risk of breast cancer. Q If I may ask why are you here? A I am dying of breast cancer. Carpe Diem is not a bad philosophy. Children do give more to your life than they take, usually.
