The body composition changes have been considered with increased risk of development oncological pathology – breast cancer. The analysis of anthropometric parameters for women in postmenopausal age allow indicated individuals with higher risk due to evaluation value waist-hip index (WHR) ,the thickness of the skin fold over m.triceps brachii, m. biceps brachii, as well subscapular and suprailiac the skin fold.
