Breast Cancer is the number one cancer among new cancer patient diagnoses

About one out of every 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime -and men can be diagnosed with it as well. On a global basis, breast cancer impacts about 2.1 million women annually. It is a very challenging disease for patients and medical professionals to deal with worldwide.

These are some essential facts to know about breast cancer in the United States:

  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers; it is estimated that in 2020, about 30% of all new women cancer diagnoses will be breast cancer
  • In 2020, about 276,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in the U.S. as well as 48,530 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer
  • This year, an estimated 42,170 women will die from breast cancer in the United States
  • On average, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 2 minutes in the United States
  • Although it is rare men can be diagnosed with breast cancer, during 2020 about 2,620 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S. and about 520 will die from it
  • 64% of breast cancer cases are diagnosed at a localized stage (there is no sign that the cancer has spread outside of the breast), for which the 5-year survival rate is about 99%
  • There are more than 3.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States
