Of all the known cancers to humankind, the rates of spread and deaths of breast cancer are the most alarming. A myth that breast cancer is only found in older women (aged 50 and above) has been falsified over the past years after coming across younger girls and adults starting from 15 up to 40 suffering from breast cancer. One might say that it is uncommon in young women, but still, it is the most frequent cancer in women under 40, accounting for 30–40%. Moreover, Breast cancer in Pakistan is different from that in the West. Here, it is affecting younger women and more than half of them present themselves in advanced stages. Around 63 percent population of the country comprises youth aged between 15 and 33, which means a large fraction of the population is getting affected. “It is a big increase, and it’s accelerating over time, and it’s hitting the youngest women,” says, an oncologist. Breast cancer is more aggressive and fast-growing in younger women and this age group is 40% more likely to die of this disease than postmenopausal women. Many doctors suspect that breast cancer in young women is a very different disease than in older women, perhaps caused by different risk factors. “Cancer at such a young age is especially tragic”. Although doctors have made remarkable advances in treating metastatic breast cancer and prolonging women’s lives, the disease is considered incurable. Although 87% of women diagnosed with earlier cancers survive at least five years, only 31% of those with metastatic disease live that long. In another study, women aged 20-49 years compared with women aged 50-69 and it was found that the cumulative 5-year relative survival ratio was lowest in women aged 20–34. Another alarming factor is that women are at increased risk of breast cancer for five years after giving birth because the hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy can fuel tumors. Furthermore, screening mammography isn’t recommended for women under 40 unless they have an increased risk of breast cancer which means younger women may wait longer before seeking treatment. So, breast cancers found in younger women may be larger than those found in older women who get regular mammograms and so when we get to know about the development of cancer in them, it’s already too late, as the incidence of stage IV breast cancer at diagnosis for young women (aged 25 to 39) increased from 1.53 per 100,000 in 1976 to 2.90 per 100,000 in 2009. In addition to this, breast cancer causes detrimental changes in their normal lives. It causes Fertility issues because breast cancer treatment can affect a woman’s ability and plans to have children. Moreover, Young breast cancer survivors may have a higher prevalence of psychosocial issues such as anxiety and depression. There have also been doubts about pregnancy (whether it is safe or possible) after diagnosis. So, it’s now or never for us to disbelieve this myth and start working for the protection of the younger girls and adults. Because, even if it isn’t a big number today, we need to ponder upon what it’s pointing at, ‘Is this a trend that’s continuing over time?’
