She had aggressive breast cancer at 37. Now she urges younger women not to neglect breast checks

SINGAPORE — At 37, Ms Wu Ying Ying thought she was too young to get breast cancer.

Now, the marketing manager wants women to know that the disease can hit at any age and encourages them to pay attention to their breast health through regular screening and self-examinations.

Three years ago, it was a blow to her when she found out a small lump in her left breast turned out to be Stage 1 triple-negative breast cancer, an aggressive type of breast cancer.
