My college girlfriend was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was in her early twenties. Early detection of the disease allowed the doctors to treat the cancerous areas. She like millions of other women and men are cancer survivors.
The American Cancer Society’s most recent estimates for breast cancer in the United States are for 2010:
– About 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.
– About 54,010 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
– About 39,840 women will die from breast cancer.
Early detection is key, schedule a mammogram and learn the early warning signs of breast cancer.
