The cohort was linked to the Danish Cancer Registry to identify all cases of breast cancer, and standardized incidence ratios (SIR) and 95{\%} confidence intervals (CI) were calculated.RESULTS: Overall, women with a benign ovarian tumor were at significantly increased risk of breast cancer. The risk was confined to women with a solid ovarian tumor (SIR 1.09; 95{\%} CI 1.05-1.13), particularly in women ≥ 50 years at benign tumor diagnosis (SIR 1.19; 95{\%} CI 1.12-1.26). The risk remained increased up to 20 years or more after the diagnosis of a solid ovarian tumor (SIR 1.11; 95{\%} CI 1.04-1.18), and women with a solid tumor were at increased risk of ductal, lobular, and other types of breast cancer, although most consistent for the lobular subtype. For cystic tumors, this association was confined to ductal breast cancer in women with the tumor diagnosed at age ≥ 50 years.CONCLUSIONS: Women with a benign ovarian tumor were at increased risk of breast cancer. This association was largely confined to women with a solid ovarian tumor, and the excess risk was present 20 years or more after the ovarian tumor diagnosis.
