Researchers say more young American women are being diagnosed with advanced breast cancer.
It’s a newly recognized trend. The numbers are small, but it’s been going on for a generation. And the trend has accelerated in recent years.
The discovery had unusual origins in a Houston book group about seven years ago. Three of the women in the group were diagnosed with breast cancer. Alison Henning, a geologist and mother of two young boys, was one of them.
