- •African-Americans and Hispanics diagnosed with breast cancer under 50 were likely to present with palpable concern and have no prior screening.
- •These young minority women diagnosed with breast cancer were also likely to have invasive and triple negative cancer.
- •Our study highlights the importance of screening mammography in young African-American and Hispanic women who tend to have aggressive cancer.
- •Our data support ACR/SBI recommendations that African-American may be at high-risk for breast cancer and should be evaluated for risk by age 30.
