Young women diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 45 face unique physical and psychosocial challenges. These concerns, compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic, can have a significant impact on patients’ emotional well-being. It is important for lay navigators, community-based navigators, and other healthcare providers to be prepared to address their young breast cancer patients’ concerns.
