Subtype-Dependent Relationship Between Young Age at Diagnosis and Breast Cancer Survival
J Clin Oncol (2016) 34:3308-14.
PURPOSE: Young women are at increased risk for developing more aggressive subtypes of breast cancer. Although previous studies have shown a higher risk of breast cancer recurrence and death among young women with early-stage breast cancer, they have not adequately addressed the role of tumor subtype in outcomes. METHODS: We examined data from women with newly diagnosed stage I to III breast cancer presenting to one of eight National Comprehensive Cancer Network centers between January 2000 and December 2007.

RESULTS: A total of 17,575 women with stage I to III breast cancer were eligible for analysis, among whom 1,916 were
