What Are the Early Signs of Breast Cancer?
Breast cancer is the second most common cancer found in women — after skin cancer — but that
doesn’t mean men aren’t at risk as well. Although the percentage of cases in men is much lower than in women, male breast cancer accounts for a portion of new cases every year.
Facts and Statistics
There is no effective breast cancer screening tool yet for women under 40 most of whom have dense breast tissue that prevents routine mammogram from being a useful screening tool.
Breast Cancer in USA
Each year, approximately 70,000 women age 15 to 39 are diagnosed with cancer in the US. Breast cancer is the most common cancer for women in this age group.
Every year, more than 1,000 women under age 40 die from breast cancer. Nearly 80% of young women diagnosed with breast cancer find their breast cancer abnormality themselves.
Compared to older women, young women generally face more aggressive cancer and lower survival rates. More and more evidence tells us that breast cancer before age 40 differs biologically from the cancer faced by older women.
