Title: Breast cancer amongst old and young women: Prevalence, risk factors in Lviv city, Ukraine


Biography: Obianuju Efobi Chinyere


Background:  Breast  cancer  is  becoming  a  silent killer  amongst  women  of  younger  age due  to  negligence  and   belief  that  it  occurs only  in  old  women.  As  long  as there  are  presence  of  breast  tissues  in  a  female, breast  cancer  can occur  from  any  age.

Methods: A  qualitative  study  was  carried  out  for  1 week, offline  forms  were  filled  by   women  of different  races, ages   diagnosed  of  cancer. Data  was  compiled ,AGE 15-35 was  grouped  as  young  and 36 >  was  grouped  as  old.

Result: Among   the   participants, were   6   cases   of   younger   women   and   39   cases   of  older   women .  Most  women  of  the  young  age group  linked  their  diagnosis  to  genetic  predisposition  while  women  of  older  age  groups  could  not  determine  a   link  to  their diagnosis  which  rarely  occurs.   

Conclusion: Prevalence   of   breast  cancer  in  younger  women   is  quite  low  and  can  be  linked  to family  history, unlike  in  older   women  it   is  very  high and  can be  due  to  various  risk  factors  which  cannot  be  stated  specifically.
