The objective of this study was to analyze time trends in overall mortality from breast cancer in Brazil, Brazilian regions and States. This is an exploratory study, of the time series of deaths from breast cancer contained in the Mortality Information System SIMof women living in Brazil, Brazilian regions and States, from to There was a tendency of increased mortality from breast cancer in Brazilian women average increase of 0.
In relation to treatment, the breast cancer world generally refers to pre-menopausal women as 'young', as the treatment options can be different according to menopausal status. A young woman in her 20s or 30s is not thinking about dying. Breast cancer forced me to examine the issue of my mortality.
Younger women generally do not consider themselves to be at risk for breast cancer. Breast cancer can strike at any age: five percent of breast cancer cases occur in women under 40 years of age. All women should be aware of their personal risk factors for breast cancer.
Breast cancer is rare in young women. Fewer than 5 percent of all breast cancers diagnosed in the U. A breast cancer diagnosis is very shocking for young women.

Young women also have a higher mortality rate and higher risk of metastatic recurrence return of breast cancer in areas beyond the breast.
Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women with 6. Despite variances in risk factors, Age Standardized Incidence Rates of breast cancer in young women vary little between different countries. Review of modifiable risk factors shows that long-term use of oral contraceptives, low body mass index BMI and high animal fat diet consumption are associated with increased risk of premenopausal breast cancer. Decreased physical activity and obesity increase risks of breast cancer in postmenopausal women, but data on premenopausal women rather shows that high BMI is associated with decreased risk of breast cancer.
