Breast Cancer Risk, Coffee Consumption, and Postdiagnosis Survival

M M DeBose et al, 2023. Breast Cancer Risk, Coffee Consumption, and Postdiagnosis Survival, Nursing for Women’s Health.


This short review summarizes two studies that explore the association between coffee consumption and breast cancer and mortality. The researchers found possible protective effects of coffee consumption and no association between coffee and increased risk of breast cancer. Nurses can help women who consume coffee to understand the current research regarding the relationship between coffee consumption and risk for breast cancer and mortality and can recommend referral to registered dietitians for comprehensive counseling on diet and cancer. Nurses can collaborate with interdisciplinary teams to help facilitate research regarding the association between coffee and breast cancer.
