Breast Cancer Facts and Figures

Breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in the United States. The American Cancer Society has estimated more than 230,000 new cases of invasive cancer diagnosed in 2015, and more than 60,000 cases of in situ breast cancer.   At the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute, breast cancer is the second most frequently diagnosed cancer, with 937 analytic cases in 2014.

The chance of developing with breast cancer increases with age, with the median age for diagnosis being 61 years.  Non-Hispanic white women are diagnosed in a higher proportion than non-Hispanic black women, Native Americans, Hispanic women or Asian/Pacific Islanders.  However, black women are more likely to be diagnosed at a young age and more likely to die of breast cancer. 

In the United States, approximately 1 of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime.  However, as a result of new treatment options and early diagnosis, more than 3 million women in the US are alive today after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
