CanPath Webinar: Examining the etiology of early-onset breast cancer

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women in Canada, with one in eight women being diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Since 2000, breast cancer incidence among younger women (less than 50 years) has increased in Canada. There is evidence that early-onset breast cancer is biologically and etiologically distinct from breast cancer diagnosed among women of older ages.

Using CanPath data, Dr. Brenner examined the impact of lifestyle and reproductive factors, as well as family and medical history, on the risk of developing early-onset breast cancer.
