Learn About Breast Cancer in Younger Women

Breast Cancer ribbonJoin us as Jessica Heinzmann, a certified genetic counselor at Morristown Medical Center, gives a free public presentation, “Breast Cancer in Women under 50.” Heinzmann will describe the factors that increase the probability of breast cancer in this population, the measures that women can take to safeguard their health, and more. A Q&A session will follow.

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women (only lung cancer kills more women each year). Death rates from female breast cancer dropped 39 percent from 1989 to 2015. But although breast cancer deaths have continued to decrease in older women since 2007, these rates have been steady in females younger than 50. These decreases are believed to be the result of finding breast cancer earlier through screening and increased awareness, as well as better treatments.

Jessica Heinzmann, MS, CGC, is a board-certified genetic counselor at Atlantic Health System and sees patients both at Overlook and Morristown Medical Centers.
