Helping Ourselves, Helping Others: the Young Woman's Breast Cancer Study

The investigators are conducting a study of young women with breast cancer. The investigators identify women age 40 and younger with newly-diagnosed breast cancer from academic and community healthcare institutions. After women consent to the study, they fill out surveys and give blood samples, and the investigators collect tissue from their breast cancer tumor after it is removed. Women are surveyed every 6 months for the first 3 years after diagnosis, then yearly thereafter for an additional 7 years (for a total follow-up of at least 10 years following diagnosis). The study investigates short and long-term disease and treatment issues, tumor biology and the relationship to patient outcomes, and psychosocial concerns at baseline and in follow-up among a cohort of young women who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer.
