2548 of the 3000 participants who partook in the screening exercise had been pregnant before. The questionnaire captured the age at first pregnancy and the results were then categorized under the following groupings: <19 years (284), 20–24 years (958), 25–29 years (849), 30–34 years (427), and >35 years (30). The ages were rounded up to the next highest whole number and the incidence of breast cancer and breast mass for each age group ascertained.
