EONS will also be part of the Consensus session drafting the BCY6 Consensus guidelines. Breast cancer in young women is a complex disease occurring when women are at the peak of their reproductive years, family life and career. Being a somewhat rare disease, the optimal management of these patients is based on scientific data derived from clinical trials mostly conducted with older woman. any aspects of breast cancer in young women are therefore poorly understood and research is much needed in this area. Young women have many years ahead of them to suffer the long-term effects and specific survivorship issues (fertility and career challenges just to mention few).

The Breast Cancer in Young Women Sixth International Consensus Symposium 2022 will address challenges and opportunities in different cultural and economical settings, follow-up care, diagnostic and treatment guidelines from early to advanced breast cancer and survivorship, updating available evidence and generating future research and collaboration with an interactive, international and collaborative spirit. NB. During the live streaming of the event, live and pre-recorded sessions will be webcast and participants will be able to enter into discussion with the experts via chat.
