Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women, but how much do you really know about it? Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, here are some critical facts about breast cancer and what you can do to help prevent it.

Key Facts About Breast Cancer

The National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. has provided these important breast cancer facts:

  • One in eight American women will receive a breast cancer diagnosis during her lifetime.
  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death due to cancer for women – every 13 minutes, one woman will die of breast cancer.
  • Even men can get breast cancer – over 2,00 men are diagnosed with breast cancer each year.
  • There are more than 3.3 million breast cancer survivors in the United States today.
  • Breast cancer death rates have been declining since 1990 due to improved treatments, increased awareness, and better screening for early detection.

While some of these facts may seem disturbing or threatening, the most significant are the last two. With millions of breast cancer survivors and declining mortality rates, you can have hope for a long and healthy life.
