Types of breast cancer

Everyone’s breast cancer is different.

Your treatment pathway and prognosis will be influenced by many factors, from the cancer’s size and spread to your own age and sex.

What type of breast cancer do you have?

Are you under 40? You're not alone.

While most cases of breast cancer occur in women over 50, around 400 New Zealand women under the age of 44 are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. These days, breast cancer is much more treatable if detected early, and there are many women still thriving decades after experiencing breast cancer at a young age. Discover the specific concerns for young women with breast cancer.

Men get breast cancer too

For the most part, your treatment will be the same as it is for women with breast cancer. Find out what to expect through diagnosis, treatment, and life afterwards.
