Information from http://www.breastcancer.org/symptoms/understand_bc/statistics
In 2017, it is estimated that among U.S. women there will be:
- In 2017, an estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 63,410 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
- About 2,470 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2017. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.
· About 40,610 women in the U.S. are expected to die in 2017 from breast cancer, though death rates have been decreasing since 1989.
The mammogram is the main test recommended by the American Cancer Society to find breast cancer early. The American Cancer Society also recommends breast MRI for women who are at high risk of breast cancer because of certain factors.
