U.S. BREAST CANCER STATISTICS U SHOULD KNOW:
About 1 in 8 women in the United States (12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
In 2010, an estimated 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 54,010 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
About 40,000 women in the U.S. were expected to die in 2010 from breast cancer.
For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer.
White women have the highest incidence rate for breast cancer. Black women have the 2ond-highest rate of getting breast cancer, followed by Hispanic, Asian, / Pacific Islander, and American Indian / Alaska women.
Black women have the highest incidence rate of death from breast cancer in the U.S. White women have the second highest incidence rate of death from breast cancer in the U.S., followed by Hispanic, Asian, / Pacific Islander, and American Indian, and Alaska native women.
More than 1 in 4 cancers in women (about 28%) are breast cancer.
In 2010, there were more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S.
A woman’s risk of breast cancer approximately doubles if she has first-degree relative (grandmother, mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. About 20-30% of women diagnosed have a family history of breast cancer.
