As many of you already know, breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer, especially in women. Although, men can also be diagnosed with breast cancer. The following are some interesting facts about breast cancer:

  • About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12.4%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
  • In 2018, an estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 63,960 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer.
  • About 2,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2018. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.
  • For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer.
  • Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. In 2017, it’s estimated that about 30% of newly diagnosed cancers in women will be breast cancers.
  • As of January 2018, there are more than 3.1 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. This includes women currently being treated and women who have finished treatment.


Breast Cancer has affected a loved one in my family. My Aunt was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer at the age of 41. She had three very young children at the time of her diagnosis and chose to be aggressive in her treatment of the cancer. With a double mastectomy, chemo and radiation, I am happy to report that she has now been cancer free for 14 years.
