In this investigation, the risk of developing contralateral breast carcinoma (CBC) was found to be high among women in northern Sweden who had hereditary/familial non-BRCA1/BRCA2 breast carcinoma. The high risk of developing CBC was attenuated further among women who were younger at the time of diagnosis (<50 years). This group had a cumulative probability of developing CBC of nearly 40% after 15 years, which was similar to the estimated risk among BRCA1/BRCA2 mutation carriers.
