Study: More Younger Women Diagnosed with Advanced Breast Cancer
A new study shows more younger women are being diagnosed with advanced breast cancer.
Researchers found the number of American women ages 25 to 39 with advanced breast cancer has gone up two percent a year since the 1970s.
Experts say this is concerning because tumors in younger women are likely to be more aggressive than for older women.
Another issue: researchers say younger women are less likely to have health insurance or get screened for the disease routinely.
A government group has a new recommendation for older women.
It says older women shouldn't take low-dose calcium and vitamin D supplements to avoid bone fractures because they don't do much good.
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force says post-menopausal women who take vitamin D and calcium supplements are still just as likely to break bones And they even have an increased risk of kidney stones.
This study was done on low-dose supplements.
Experts say there's still not much data available about higher-dose supplements. The bottom line: experts say women should talk to their doctors about whether they should start taking or continue taking a vitamin D or calcium supplement.
