High-percent mammographic density adjusted for age and body mass index is one of the strongest risk factors for breast cancer. We conducted a meta analysis of five genome-wide association studies of percent mammographic density and report an association with rs10995190 in ZNF365 (combined P = 9.6 × 10−10). Common variants in ZNF365 have also recently been associated with susceptibility to breast cancer.69061300442058.jpg
