hi all , i have 7 whorls and o +ve. i too got a bit concerned after reading this article abt 6 or more whorls linked to breast cancer ..so just googled and tried to get more info on this. guys i just saw 2 articles on the net one by seltzer and team published in 1990 and another by P.E. Natekar and team published in 2007. From my analysis of both the papers it appears as if Natekar's study was more comprehensive and was done on more number of patients. As per Natekar's paper it seems Analysis shows that presence of >6
whorls is significantly associated negatively
with carcinoma of breast (χ2 =16.61, d f=1, p<0.01).
It appears that >6 whorls have a protective effect
for carcinoma of breast. (OR=0.1319, 95% C.I. =
0.035-0.49). please check this article in the link below..hmm hope this will help people with more than 6 whorls relax
