Abstract

Breast cancer is a threat to women’s health. Female adolescents need to be vigilant. This study aimed to analyze the relationship between dietary patterns, sedentary lifestyles, and breast cancer awareness among female adolescents. A cross-sectional approach with stratified random sampling was used. The sample population included 206 female adolescents aged 15-18 from the Vocational High School in Surabaya. The data was collected using a validated self-administered questionnaire to measure breast cancer awareness, a Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ), and an Adolescent Sedentary Activity Questionnaire (ASAQ). The data were analyzed using Chi-square, and Spearman’s Rho tests. Breast cancer awareness among female adolescents was high (67,5%). Dietary patterns were shown to be significantly associated with breast cancer awareness in female adolescents (OR=0,230; 95% CI: 0,081-0,651; p=0,007). However, no significant relationship between a sedentary lifestyle and breast cancer awareness. The respondents were aware of breast cancer. Nevertheless, they had insufficient knowledge of its risk factors, signs, and symptoms. Lack of knowledge regarding its risk factors might be a reason for this sedentary lifestyle. These findings suggest that further research is necessary to investigate over a time series.
