Breast cancer is the most common female cancer with approximately 194,000 new cases diagnosed each year in the United States. More than 70% of breast cancers occur in women who are 50 years of age and older. The incidence of breast cancer increases with age, beginning slowly between ages of 45 and 50 years of age, and steadily rises each year. Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths for women between 20 and 59 years of age.
Treatment for breast cancer is dependent upon the clinical staging and may include a combination of surgery, radiation, and/or chemotherapy.
