Breast cancer is relatively rare in women under the age of 35, regardless of race or ethnicity. However, studies have shown that young black women tend to have a higher incidence of aggressive subtypes of breast cancer compared to other racial and ethnic groups.

According to the American Cancer Society's most recent data, in 2021, an estimated 7,600 women under the age of 45 in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer. However, specific statistics for black women under 35 are not readily available.

To obtain the most accurate and up-to-date statistics on breast cancer in black women under 35 in 2023, I recommend referring to reputable sources such as the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, or other cancer research organizations. They regularly publish reports and studies that provide detailed information on breast cancer incidence and outcomes among different populations.

before cancer.....

Before my breast cancer diagnosis, I was incredibly shallow. I was obsessed with my appearance and always striving to live up to the model image I had created for myself. I even dreamed of posing for Playboy one day. But after a double mastectomy, I am now so self-conscious that I can hardly recognize myself. It took me almost a month to look down at my chest after the surgery. I cried and cried for hours in the bathroom, wondering how this could be happening to me. I had always been so confident in my body, and now I felt like a stranger in my own skin. As a mother, I struggled with how to teach my daughter to be confident when I was struggling so much myself. How could I tell her to love herself when I didn't even recognize myself anymore? I was grateful for my surgeon's skilled hands and for getting the cancer out, but I hated the results. When people say that a mastectomy is not a boob job, they are right. The scars and the fact that I will never have sensation again at 34
