China’s breast cancer patients compared with Europe and the United States, the incidence of younger age. Teens and twenty, thirty of these age had more breast cancer. Before the elderly women with breast cancer, after surgery only want to save life, not too concerned about sexual life. But now that the patient is getting younger and younger, and the survival rate of breast cancer is higher and higher, how can the patient maintain the normal sex life while keeping the milk? Reporters interviewed the experts.
breast cancer is becoming younger and younger
Ye Changsheng, director of the southern hospital breast center, the absolute incidence of breast cancer in China is not high in Europe and the United states. The overall incidence of breast cancer in China is about 35~45/10 million, while the incidence of the United States is 90~110/10 million. However, the incidence of breast cancer in China is becoming more and more popular. The majority of patients with breast cancer in developed countries in Europe and the United States are postmenopausal. However, the incidence of premenopausal and postmenopausal women in our country is about half. Ye Changsheng said he sees patients the youngest is 22 years old, 20~30 year old patients accounted for about 5% of total number of patients, and patients aged 30~40 accounted for nearly 1/3 of the total number of patients.

This gives young patients " keep breast " confidence, of course, choose to remove or protect the milk according to specific conditions to decide.

However, breast shaping is only suitable for patients with breast cancer I, II and part III, for patients with large lesions range is not suitable for patients with advanced.
moderately good life for patients with rehabilitation
