[Source: UA News] – A new study by University of Arizona researchers suggests that breast cancer may be a significant risk factor for developing a serious form of endometrial cancer in women age 55 or younger.

Dr. Wenxin Zheng and Dr. Setsuko K. Chambers of the Arizona Cancer Center and the UA department of obstetrics and gynecology were among an international group of scientists who participated in the research study, which partially was funded by the Arizona Cancer Center from its National Cancer Institute core grant and from a Better Than Ever pilot grant.
