Breast Cancer


Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women in the United States, second only to skin cancer. While the breast cancer death rate has declined since its peak in 1989, many families continue to be affected by this disease each year.
Furthermore, certain populations remain disproportionately burdened by breast cancer and experience greater obstacles to prevention, screening, early detection, treatment and survival, including systemic factors that are complex and go beyond the obvious connection to cancer.
The American Cancer Society collaborates with health care experts and organizations to provide the latest science and information in breast cancer prevention, screening, early detection, treatment, and survivorship.
