Clinicopathological characteristics and prognosis of breast cancer in young women

This study was attempted to evaluate the clinicopathological features and outcomes of young breast cancer (YBC) patients in a developing country. Researchers enrolled consecutive patients aged 35 years or younger with a pathologically confirmed diagnosis of breast cancer treated and followed up at the department. They examined and documented medical records and follow-up databases. Compared with the old counterparts, YBC patients had more aggressive pathological features, such as hormone receptor-negative, triple-negative, high-grade and advanced stage, and poorer disease-free survival.
