dc.description.abstractResearch has shown a strong link between environmental pollutants and breast cancer onset. The aim of this study was to explore the perceptions of females in relation to breast cancer development, its association with environmental influences and other risk factors. Apparatus used were a dictaphone and NVivo 8 software. Six young Dublin females took part in this qualitative research study. Semi-structured, one-to-one interviews took place. Recorded data was coded and analysed using thematic methods. Genetics, age and gender emerged as the top perceived risk factors from this cohort. Results showed the majority of participants did not link environmental factors to breast cancer development. It was concluded that there is a huge lack of knowledge as to this connection within this cohort.en
