U.S. Estimates Show Annual 12 % Rise in Breast Cancer for Women Under 45
Date:2/26/2013

are stoic about having to operate without hard data to guide them, year after year. “We use the figure of 10 to 15 percent of all invasive breast cancer cases, but getting the actual number of younger women affected by triple negative each year, is a big area of frustration,” said Elizabeth Woolfe, former executive director of the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation, that has raised more than a million dollars for research in search of a cure for this aggressive type of breast cancer that disproportionally affects younger women. ABC’s Robin Roberts and Fox News Correspondent, Jennifer Griffin, each faced a triple negative diagnosis within the past six years, while in their 40’s.

“We think we may be looking at 10,000 or 12,000 a year, depending on what data source you look at,” said Stacy Lewis, Chief Program Officer, at the Young Survival Coalition, referring to the number of women under 40 in the U.S., diagnosed with some type of invasive breast cancer in any given year.

Staff at the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Breast Cancer in Young Women said that between 1998 and 2007 the rate of breast cancer in women under 45 had been fairly stable, but staff did not have more recent information, nor hard data to back up their outdated information.

“For those of us completely focused on stopping breast cancer before it starts, it’s especially hard to set prevention goals or define success when the government offers us no annual, no current, and no transparent national statistics; breast cancer prevention groups have no way to objectively measure progress,” said Wadia-Ells.

According to Wadia-Ells’ new ebook, American women of childbearing age make up only five percent of all childbearing-aged women worldwide, but according to market research reports, the 12 million women in the U.S. who currently use birth control drugs, consume more than a quarter of all contraceptive drugs manufactured worldwide.
