Cancer risk in opposite-sex and same-sex twins

Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationCommunication

Abstract

Twin pregnancies are characterized by simultaneous development of two fetuses that share the womb. An interest in opposite-sex (OS) twins, twin pairs consisting of one male and one female, comes from animal studies that showed that exposure to sex hormones is influenced by the position of the fetus in the womb. Studies in rodents have shown that female fetuses developing between males are masculinized in several anatomical, physiological and behavioral traits.
