UK breast cancer news

Breast cancer rates in under-50s at record high (by NHS Choices)

Much of the UK media are covering the release of data that indicates breast cancer rates in the under-50s are now at a record high. Changes in childbirth patterns and alcohol consumption could be to blame, according to a leading charity.

The news follows new data released by Cancer Research UK. Its data shows that breast cancer diagnoses among women aged under 50 have now reached an all-time high, breaking the 10,000 mark for the first time in 2010. One in five diagnosed breast cancer cases are now in women under the age of 50.

Possible explanations for the increases are speculated to be due to known hormonal risk factors for cancer – such as having children later in life. Increased alcohol intake, another risk factor for breast cancer, could also be involved.

The rise in the number of new cases is not restricted to the under-50s: there has been a steady increase in the number of cases diagnosed for women of all ages since the 1970s.

But the rise isn’t necessarily as bad as it sounds. For example it could reflect better breast awareness and improved diagnosis and screening, which in turn might lead to early treatment and improved chances of survival.

The good news is that – despite the increase in breast cancer diagnoses – breast cancer deaths are actually falling. An increasing number of women are now survivors of breast cancer.
