Younger Breast Cancer Survivors Have Sexual Challenges, TooBreast cancer has numerous effects on a woman’s sexual quality of life, even when women are diagnosed at a young age.

The National Cancer Institute estimates that 266,120 cases of female breast cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2018. While women of any age can develop breast cancer, it is more common in middle-aged and older women. About 2% of women are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 34.
