What are the key statistics about breast cancer?
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. About 1 in 8 (12%) women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime.
The American Cancer Society's estimates for breast cancer in the United States for 2015 are:
About 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.
About 60,290 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer). About 40,290 women will die from breast cancer
After increasing for more than 2 decades, female breast cancer incidence rates began decreasing in 2000, then dropped by about 7% from 2002 to 2003. This large decrease was thought to be due to the decline in use of hormone therapy after menopause that occurred after the results of the Women's Health Initiative were published in 2002. This study linked the use of hormone therapy to an increased risk of breast cancer and heart diseases. In recent years, incidence rates have been stable in white women, but have increased slightly in African American women.
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer. The chance that breast cancer will be responsible for a woman's death is about 1 in 36 (about 3%). Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1989, with larger decreases in women younger than 50. These decreases are believed to be the result of earlier detection through screening and increased awareness, as well as improved treatment.
At this time there are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. (This includes women still being treated and those who have completed treatment.) Survival rates are discussed in the section “Breast cancer survival rates by stage.”

Satoya Shvette:It took me some time to realize that I too was experiencing cases of domestic violence in my relationship with a man I had been with for 4+ years. At the time I made excuses, took the blame and ignored all the signs. I had no one to talk to, & thought it would either get better or not happen anymore. It first started off as verbal and emotional. Never felt so low, unappreciated & un beautiful in my life. Paulyana Martin: I am a living witness due to Domestic Violence and Breast Cancer! I want to share my story to help other teenagers/women that we are beautiful and we don't need a man to succeed in life! My story begins when I was young around the age of 11-12 I sexually abuse (rape) by my own step brother. No matter how much I spoke about what was happening to me my mother didn't believe me! I took it upon myself to get tested! Women don't take your health for granted Breast Cancer. Lacha Mitchell: I'm a recurrent Breast Cancer survivor. I was initially diagnosed in 09/2003 at the age of 32 years old and then again at the age of 33 in 06/2004. Undergoing chemotherapy for stage one cancer that was self detected during a breast exam- was supposedly the easy fix. Once treatment began, additional biopsies, my daughter who was ten years old at the time was diagnosed with stage 3B Hodgkins Lymphoma and Paraneoplastic Syndrome. She was near death and the cancer had spread. It's thirteen years later and I'm a living testimony, twelve years for my daughter who is now twenty-one years old. We still are dealing with long term effects of the disease but we are still standing by the grace of God.

Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the breast, it is called breast cancer. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before she has any symptoms.. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. Most women who are 50 to 74 years old should have a screening mammogram every two years. If you are 40 to 49years old, or think you may have a higher risk of breast cancer, ask your doctor when to have a screening mammogram. Some things may increase your risk. If you have risk factors, you may be more likely to get breast cancer.
Reproductive risk factors
• Being younger when you had your first menstrual period.
• Never giving birth, or being older at the birth of your first child.
• Starting menopause at a later age.• Using hormone replacement therapy for a long time.
Other risk factors
• Getting older.
• A personal history of breast cancer, dense breasts, or some other
• A family history of breast cancer (parent, sibling, or child).
• Changes in your breast cancer-related genes (BRCA1 or BRCA2).
• Getting radiation therapy to the breast or chest.
• Being overweight, especially after menopause.
