In the United States, approximately 235,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed annually. Breast cancer will develop in approximately 1 in 8 women who achieve a normal life expectancy and is the second most common cause of cancer death among women in the United States (lung cancer is the most common). The incidence decreased in the early 2000s and has leveled off since then.
