Washington (dbTechno) – Breast cancer has been diagnosed in a 10-year-old California girl.
The 10-year-old is the youngest girl ever to suffer from breast cancer in the U.S.
The girl, Hannah Powell-Auslam, is now receiving treatment to try and beat the disease.
Needless to say, the diagnosis of breast cancer shocked everyone, including doctors as they have never seen anybody diagnosed at such a young age.
The young 5th grade student told her parents she felt something on her rib cage area.
When doctors checked it out, they found it to be a malignant tumor.
The cancer was later found in a lymph node during the mastectomy procedure.
The 10-year-old is going to fully recover, but this is still a shocking case nonetheless.
