Advanced Breast Cancer Up Among Younger Women

Breast cancer rates have increased among women 25-39, say researchers from the University of Washington. A recent study found between the years 1976-2009, the rate of advanced breast cancer among younger women increased by 2.1 percent — a trend not seen among older women. High obesity rates, increased alcohol use and genetics may be to blame, reports ABC.com. —Kellee Terrell
