Abstract:

This paper presents contemporary scientific literature review of surgical features in breast cancer (BC) patients of young age. Despite significant advances in the diagnosis and treatment, during last decades, there is an increased morbidity and mortality of BC, especially in young age women, which is associated with the aggressiveness and heterogeneity of this type of tumours and their complex biological features. In this regard, BC remains a serious public health problem. A deeper understanding of BC in young patients will help in further optimizing and improving the effectiveness of treatment in these patients.
