Answer #7

Each woman’s breast cancer risk may be higher or lower, depending upon a several factors, including family history, genetics, age of menstruation, and other factors that have not yet been identified. While breast cancer is less common at a young age (I.e., in their thirties), younger women tend to have more aggressive breast cancers than older women, which may explain why survival rates are lower among younger women. All women are at risk for developing breast cancer. The older a woman is, the greater her chances of developing breast cancer. Approximately 77% of breast cancer cases occur in women over 50 years of age.

So, it’s highly unlikely that you can get breast cancer at your age, but always perform regular breast checks on yourself, early detection is the best way to safely remove the cancer from your body.
