Breast Cancer Prevention

About Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer death after lung cancer. It is estimated that one in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Early detection is the most effective way of surviving this disease. When found early, the chance of cure can exceed 90 percent.
