Description

FOREWORD
Breast cancer in young women is a complex disease, occurring when these women are at the peak of their reproductive years, family life and careers. Being a somewhat rare disease, the optimal management of these patients is based on scientific data derived from clinical trials mostly conducted on older women. Many aspects of breast cancer in young women are therefore poorly understood (e.g. etiology and biology among others) and research is much needed in this field. In addition, young women have many years ahead of them to suffer the long-term effects of treatment and specific survivorship issues (fertility and job among others). This fifth event is a new opportunity for the latest updates on this field and a platform for generating future research concepts and collaborations. It will cover challenges and opportunities in different cultural and economic settings, follow-up care, guidelines and challenges in the management of ABC in young women. It will also include a Consensus Session that will form the basis for a Consensus Guidelines manuscript to be published after the Symposium.
We hope that you will join us and contribute to further develop the understanding and treatment of this disease.

Olivia Pagani
On behalf of the Co-Chair and the Scientific Committee Members
