We respond to research that has shown breast cancer rates increasing amongst younger people

Dr Simon Vincent, director of research, support and influencing at Breast Cancer Now, said:

“More than 55,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the UK and most cases happen in older women. Younger women can however also develop the disease, but staying physically active and moderating their alcohol intake can reduce their risk of developing breast cancer. 

 “Recognising that younger women may experience different challenges when faced with a breast cancer diagnosis, we offer dedicated support services to women with breast cancer aged under 45, while anyone affected by this devastating disease can speak to our expert nurses by calling our free helpline on 0808 800 6000.”
