Study Sees More Breast Cancer at Young Age
New York Times

The incidence of advanced breast cancer among younger women, ages 25 to 39, may have increased slightly over the last three decades, according to a study released Tuesday. But more research is needed to verify the finding, which was based on an analysis of statistics, the study’s authors said. They do not know what may have caused the apparent increase. Some outside experts questioned whether the increase was real, and expressed concerns that the report would frighten women needlessly.
