College-age women often unaware of breast cancer risk
Editor's Note: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated 70,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer between the ages of 15 and 39. This number refers to those diagnosed with all types of cancer.

THis is really true that no one cares. I was 38 with no family history or breast cancer. I saw a doctor and was diagnosed with eczema, only to find out 2 years later I had Paget's of the right breast and had to have part of my breast removed and extensive radiation. I had a hard time getting any help due to my age and no family history. I tried going after the doctor to atleast get him fined or something and nothing. I also have chronic pain due to the radiation or scar tissue healing over a nerve. Tried getting on disability and was denied due to local doctor telling me it was all in my mind. There really is not a lot of help for people who don't know anyone or aren't contributing a lot to the hospital. By the grace of God I am alive.
