The Continuum of Breast Cancer Risk, Treatment and Survivorship in Women Under 40

Description

The population of women under 40 years of age with breast cancer or an elevated risk for the disease presents a unique challenge to a treating physician. The optimal protocol for screening this cohort of women is evolving with greater understanding of biology of their disease. Younger women also face particular issues regarding fertility preservation, and concern about long-term treatment effects. Experts will discuss risk assessment and screening in younger women, therapeutic considerations for women under 40, and unique challenges in survivorship for young breast cancer survivors.
