Breast cancer is still the most common cancer in women worldwide. Here are the numbers behind breast cancer in America.By Matt Picht | September 28, 2015
According to the American Cancer Society, there will be approximately 230,000 new invasive breast cancer diagnoses in the U.S. this year, as well as around 40,000 breast cancer-related deaths.
That’s pretty close to where those numbers were in 2012, which is the most recent data available.
And it fits the broader trend of breast cancer in America: diagnosis rates and death rates have remained fairly static or declined slightly over the last ten years on record.
