shock diagnosis at the age of eight - girl defeats breast cancer

At the age of eight, Chrissy Turner was diagnosed with breast cancer and she was the youngest person ever diagnosed with breast cancer. Today she is ten years old and thanks to the successful treatment is cancer free. The breast tissue in the right breast was, however, removed within the framework of therapy and the doctors are currently planning the reconstruction of the breast.

When she was eight years old, Chrissy diagnosed secretive breast cancer, a rare form of the disease, which accounts for only about one percent of all breast cancer diseases, reports the daily Daily Mail. After the shock diagnosis, the girl was subjected to a mastectomy in which the breast tissue of her right breast was completely removed to prevent spread of the disease. Two years after her breast cancer was diagnosed, the 10-year-old Chrissy Turner today is happy and cancer-free.

Increased cancer in the family

Even before Chrissy had reached puberty, doctors diagnosed breast cancer. Her parents had also suffered a variety of cancer, the father had a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, which had returned after the operation of Chrissy. He, too, was able to overcome his illness and since then the family has been spared further cancer diagnoses."Chrissy's life has largely normalized. However, she continues to take precautionary examinations every three to four months ", reports Daily Mail.

Normal breast development not available

Although Chrissy is no longer suffering from cancer, her breast will never develop normally as the entire breast tissue has been removed."Just over a month ago, Chrissy had her first appointment with a plastic surgeon to develop a plan for the reconstruction of her left breast," the British daily said. The risk of a cancer of the left breast also remains, which is why Chrissy's regular preventive examinations are still indispensable.(fp)
