8-year-old diagnosed with rare form of breast cancer

Girl could likely be youngest person to ever have the disease

An eight-year-old girl from Utah has been diagnosed with a rare type of breast cancer. She could likely be one of the youngest ever to receive such a diagnosis, reports Time.

"Her secretory carcinoma diagnosis accounts for only 0.15% of breast cancers and is 'very treatable'," said the magazine.

Chrissy Turner found a lump in her chest last month, The Guardian reports.

It's shocking not only because of her tender age, but also because both her parents are cancer survivors. The mother suffered from cervical cancer while her father is currently battling a Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma relapse.

Chrissy’s secretory carcinoma diagnosis accounts for only 0.15% of breast cancers and is “very treatable", Chrissy Turner’s doctor told the paper.
