Mortality Rate Increased in Breast Cancer Cases Under 40 Years of Age

According to statistics, about 85 percent of breast cancer in women occurs after the age of 40. However, the more aggressive course of breast cancer seen under the age of 40 increases its importance. According to an analysis study published recently in the Journal of Radiology, it was noted that the death toll from breast cancer in women under the age of 40 increased for the first time since 1987. General Surgery Specialist Prof. Dr. Özcan Gökçe evaluated the study, which surprised the results.

The rate of loss of life is decreasing day by day thanks to the ever-developing treatment approaches and early diagnosis opportunities for breast cancer, which is among the most common cancers in women. Stating that in the aforementioned analysis study, it was shown that breast cancer death rates in women between the ages of 40 and 79 decrease between 1,2 percent and 2,2 percent every ten years, Yeditepe University Hospitals General Surgery Specialist Prof. Dr. Özcan Gökçe said, “An interesting data on women under the age of 40 drew attention.
