A new factsheet from Alcohol Concern, released on Monday 22 June, looks at how alcohol increases the risk of developing breast cancer.

Breast cancer is by far the most prevalent and one of the most lethal cancers for women in the UK. It affects around 1 in 8 women in the UK during their lifetime.

The factsheet highlights:

  • In 2011, 3,000 of the breast cancer cases were directly attributable to alcohol consumption
  • Each drink per day increases the risk in women of developing breast cancer by between 7% – 12%
  • Alcohol has long been known to have carcinogenic (cancer causing) properties, and more than 50 studies have confirmed alcohol is a particular risk factor in the development of breast cancer
  • The exact causal mechanism between alcohol and breast cancer is not fully known – but it is likely due to the way alcohol breaks down into toxic chemicals in our body and increases the production of the female hormone oestrogen.
