"BREAST CANCER FACTS" ~2010 and 2013~


  • The American Cancer Society's most recent estimates for breast cancer in the United States are for 2010:
  • About 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women.
  • About 54,010 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be found (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
  • About 39,840 deaths from breast cancer (women)
  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer.
  • It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.
  • The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer some time during her life is a little less 1 in 8. 
  • The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 35
  • Breast cancer death rates have been consistently dropping. Which is probably the result of finding cancer earlier and better treatment. 
  • Right now there are more than 2½ million breast cancer survivors in the United States.

  • In 2013, an estimated 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed among US women, as well as an estimated 64,640 additional cases of in situ breast cancer.
  •  Approximately 39,620 US women were expected to die from breast cancer. Only lung cancer accounts for more cancer deaths in women.
  • Breast cancer incidence rates are highest in non-Hispanic white women, followed by African American women and are lowest among Asian/Pacific Islander women. 
  • In contrast, breast cancer death rates are highest for African American women, followed by white women.
  • Breast cancer death rates are lowest for Asian/Pacific Islander women. Breast cancer incidence and death rates also vary by state. "American Cancer Society"
