8yo girl diagnosed with rare breast cancer

A young girl in Utah has been diagnosed with secretory breast carcinoma, a rare form of breast cancer.

Chrissy Turner, 8, discovered the tuma in her breast on November 9.

“She came to us on a Sunday afternoon and said Mommy I have been scared and I have this lump,'” Chrissy’s mum Annette Turner told ABC News.


“Only one in one million are diagnosed and she is the youngest that they’ve run across having this particular type of breast cancer, I broke down.”

While the breast cancer Chrissy has is extremely rare, her doctors at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City believe Chrissy can be successfully treated.

Chrissy will undergo a mastectomy at Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City.
