Breast Cancer Treatment, A latest report reveals that though breast cancer survivors are being cured and surviving successfully today as compared to the treatment facilities about two decades ago, which made it tough for women to cope with the disease. The risk of their future fertility is still questioned, say researchers.

It has been found by the researchers at the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of California-Los Angeles that women who get diagnosed with the disease at an earlier stage are facing heavy toll. They said that reproductive issues such as infertility and early-onset menopause are also faced by such women.

Young women below the age of 50, who get treatment earlier, need to tackle physical as well as mental health problems. In addition, it has also been revealed by the American Cancer Society that women younger than 50 are the most targeted victims of the breast cancer, the most common non-skin cancer in women, in the US.

Researchers have further concluded that young women survivors of the disease have to struggle through a wide number of life challenges too, such as weight gain and psychological stress. Moreover, these women find it much difficult after cancer-related surgery to hold their body and move on easily.

Though chemotherapy and then surgery can help them to fight the ailment, but sometimes, this treatment leaves them with unfulfilled plans of having children and making them to be called infertile. Breast Cancer hits them all of a sudden and unexpectedly bringing a major change in their smooth running and healthy working life, say the reports.

“We hear such negative information [about cancer], but you can only fight one battle at a time. We are so engulfed in our disease that we forget we have to live our lives every day” said Nicole Vazquez, 40, a breast cancer survivor.
