In a St. Joseph Health Scene Report, women with a history of migraine headaches appear to have a 30% reduction in risk for breast cancer. Researchers really can't explain the lowered risk but they suspect hormones play a role. Women who have higher levels of estrogen in their blood have higher levels of breast cancer. Migraines are often triggered by low levels of estrogen. More research is planned to investigate the link.
