Question: What is the difference between breast cancer and breast tissue cancer? What is the difference apart from the location (do not include the symptoms) What are the possible rates for a 15 year old to get breast cancer and a 15 year old to get breast tissue cancer? I really need to know if my friend is lying to me, I only found out yesterday the she had it.

Answer: Breast cancer and breast tissue cancer is the same thing there is no difference. From 1975 to 2000 1.3 in every one million 15-19 year olds were diagnosed with breast cancer. It is very unlikely your friend has breast cancer if she is only 15 years old.
