How young can females develop breast cancer?

Report as

Studies have shown that young women are at risk of getting breast cancer because of the use of oral contraceptives. Many younger women who have breast cancer ignore the warning signs such as a breast lump or unusual discharge because they believe they are too young to get breast cancer.

Girls in their mid teens have had breast cancer. It is a good idea to get into the habit of self exam very early. Have you doctor or gyn show you how and get a reminder buddy.

Honestly, a woman can get breast cancer when they're teenagers! My aunt was 16 when she had a breast-cancer scare. Thank God that she didn't have it, but that just shows you that she wasn't too young to get the disease.
