Statistics on breast cancer

What is the statistic for young women having breast cancer in Malaysia compared to older women? What about men having breast cancer?

Dear NK Valli,

Thank you for your question. According to Globocan (2012), the incidence of breast cancer is highest among women aged 40 years old and above in Malaysia.

Breast cancer can occur in men although it is very rare. Less than 1% of breast cancers occur to men.

I hope this information helps.

Best wishes,

Maya, Stronger Than Cancer moderator.
