Breast cancer before the age of 40: what are the risks?
Breast cancer remains the most common cancer in women, but you should know that it can also affect men (in 1% of cases). During his life, nearly one in eight women will face breast cancer.
This disease most often occurs around the age of 60. However, younger women can also be affected, as is the case of Caroline Receveur. Approximately 10% of breast cancer cases occur in women under the age of 35 and nearly 20% before age 50.
There is indeed a form of breast cancer that can affect younger women: it is the triple negative breast cancer. However, we are not able to confirm that it is this form for Caroline Receveur.
Triple-negative breast cancer accounts for approximately 10 to 15% of breast cancers. It involves a high risk of early metastatic relapse due to the aggressive nature of these tumors, their partial response to chemotherapy and the absence of a therapeutic target, making it possible to propose a specific treatment.
The earlier the cancer is detected, the more likely you are to be cured. The appearance of a ballof a size in the breast, under an arm (armpit) or pain is one of the symptoms common when breast cancer develops. Pay attention to this type of symptom and do not wait until you are 50 to practice self-examination.
