    I think, technically, breast cancer can strike at any age after puberty, although it's very, very unlikely for someone to get it in their teens... but it has happened before. To see some answers to a question related to this, click here: http://beyondtheshock.com/questions/1451#answers

    The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation blog has a story from a woman whose 3 year old daughter had breast cancer. It's rare but it can happen. It took a long time to get diagnosed because the doctors in her local hospital never considered it could be cancer.

    I was diagnosis at 39 - my breast cancer started around the time I was 34 pregnant with my 4th child.. Based on the location of the tumor it was undetected for the pass 5years. I forced my OB/GYN for a prescription due to my family history and I would get wellness moneys from AFLAC. This was not my first mammogram or ultrasound, I started having them at 25 when my Mother passed away from complications from breast cancer. I am so THANKFUL for taking the time to discuss my concerns with my Doctor and thinking about the possibility of developing cancer so I decided to get a supplement insurance with AFlAC years ago. I am so Thankful for having a supportive Husband, Kids and Family along with being a God fearing person I was able to go through surgery and 7weeks of radiation while going to work everyday.
