Our results have shown an increase in the incidence of BC over the past thirty years, particularly affecting YW. It will be necessary to strengthen awareness campaigns on known modifiable risk factors and search for other potential risk factors such as environmental exposure. Progress is still needed in improving the identification of high-risk patients to increase the number of early diagnoses. Further research on the evaluation of personalized screening is required. In the meantime, the continuous improvement of survival thanks to new therapies brings important hope in the management of BC.
