These days, you would be hard pressed to find anyone who has not been touched by breast cancer in some way, either a family member, co-worker or friend. Just to provide you with a few statistics, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. In 2015, invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in approximately 231,840 women. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, second only to lung cancer. The death rate from breast cancer is about 3%, and this rate has been declining since about 1989, particularly in women under age 50.
The best news...at this time, there are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Earlier detection through screening and increased awareness, as well as improved treatment has contributed to the ongoing improvement in outcomes.
