Women with mutations in either the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene hit menopause a few years earlier than those without such mutations, according to a study to be published in the journal Cancer. BRCA1/BRCA2 carriers who smoked 20 or more cigarettes daily experienced onset of menopause even sooner, at an average age of 46, researchers said.
