    About Breast Cancer

    According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women (after skin cancer), accounting for more than 1 in 4 cancers diagnosed in US women. In addition, 1 out of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. The cause of breast cancer is unknown, and there is no known way to prevent breast cancer from occurring. However, women can learn the risk factors and promote early detection with regular breast self-exams, annual mammograms and clinical check-ups.
