Rare. While the lifetime risk of breast cancer in the us is ~12%, the incidence in women of childbearing years is much lower: from age 20-29, the incidence is ~1 in 1400; from age 30-39, 1 in 233; from age 40-49, 1 in 69.
Life time ~13% A woman has a life time risk of about 13% of getting breast cancer. The incidence increases with increasing age, peaking at 75-80 years. The average age at diagnosis is 61, lower for african american and hispanic women.
Rare, but possible. Breast cancer is rare but still possible to have breast cancer woman in child bearing age. ' seer ' data 2002 to 2006 of total % of incidence breast cancers, age 20 to 30 years occurance of 1.9 % age 35 to 44 10.5%. In 2012 total breast cancer patients 222870 females and 2190 men, in usa.
Cancer: Do men get breast cancer at the same rate of incidence as women during most of their lifetime?
No. No the breast cancer in men is significantly less prevalence than women. Breast cancer does occur in men. In 2012 it was estimated that 2, 190 new cases in males would develop, with 410 deaths. It tends to occur at a later age in men than in women, with the male peak age being 71 years old as opposed to peaks at 51 and 71 years old in women. Some men ignore breast lumps or think they are caused by an infection or some other reason and they do not get medical treatment until the mass has grown significantly.
Teens to 90s. 15% of women diagnosed with breast cancer are between the ages of 15 and 39, and most are closer to 39. It's always possible, but very unlikely, for a teenager to get breast cancer. Most women who get breast cancer are 40 to 65 years old, but breast cancer can occur at any time throughout a woman's life.
Lifetime risk. Of dying of breast cancer is 2.8% (1 in 36 patients). http://www. Cancer. Org/cancer/cancerbasics/lifetime-probability-of-developing-or-dying-from-cancer.
Varies. The odds of dying of breast cancer depend on the stage at which it was diagnosed and the odds of getting breast cancer depend on personal factors and family history, so your question cannot be answered properly. Please talk to your family doc or gyn about this. Maybe you are someone who could benefit of a discussion with a professional with expertise in risk reduction. Best to you.
During. During your annual well woman exam (pap smear) your doctor or provider will perform a breast exam. If any problems are detected then appropriate tests will be ordered, such as a mammogram or ultrasound. Monthly self breast examination is a useful way to detect any problems. The best time to do this is after your period. If you find an abnormality see your doctor right away. At age 4o you should begin breast cancer screening with yearly mammograms. If you have a first degree relative with breast cancer (i.e. Your mother) then you will need to begin having mammograms beginning ten years prior to when your mother was diagnosed. For instance, if your mother was diagnosed at age 45, then your screening will begin at age 35. Don't hesitate to ask your medical provider about these reccomendations, or other questions you may have.
20's. Starting around age 20 women should have a clinical breast exam every 3 years. Those with average risk will start with mammograms at age 40. Those with a strong family history should start 5 - 10 years before the youngest family was diagnosed or age 40, whichever comes first.
Its a great honour to meet u....... Sir, can u please tell me the symptoms of breast cancer? In female. Age 18 years?
At 18 lost thing to. Worry, is the breast cancer, very very rare, for a cancer age is no exception, if at all develop will appear as painless lump in the breast. At 18 if you are afraid of breast cancer must speak to your doctor, in some anxious people, with phobias may need professional help & counseling.
Yes. It is very rare to have breast cancer before the age of 30. The most common symptom is a painless breast lump that one can feel. Lumps can also be seen by mammogram.
Breast lump, etc.. The most common sign/symptom is the presence of a lump in the breast. Other symptoms include nipple discharge, nipple inversion, skin indentation, and breast pain. Nevertheless, the majority of people diagnosed with breast cancer have no symptoms whatsoever. The best way to diagnose breast cancer early is to have routine screening mammograms beginning at age 40.
Less estrogen. The placenta puts out progesterone, which acts as an estrogen antagonist (off switch) in the body, to prevent ovulation while you're pregnant. The cyclic ramp up in estrogen is also avoided. This period of lower estrogen exposure lowers overall cancer risk.
Less cycles. Early menopause, late menarche and first full term pregnancy by age 18 lower the risk of breast cancer. This is apparently done because the number of menstrual cycles is lowered over a woman's life by these factors. This lowers a woman's exposure to endogenous hormones, like estrogen.
IT DEPENDS. If you are otherwise very healthy and expect to live another 10 or more years, you could say that the treatment should be the same as for a younger patient (except maybe avoiding adjuvent chemotherapy for node negative disease, esp if hormone sensitive). If you are an infirmed 87 yo treatment should be more individualized so as not to harm you and lower your life expectancy.
