Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers. Currently, the av- erage risk of a woman in the United States developing breast cancer sometime in her life is about 12 percent. Th is means there is a one in eight chance she will develop breast cancer. Th is also means there is a seven in eight chance she will never have the disease. The American Cancer Society’s estimates for breast cancer in the United States for 2018 are: • About 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women. • About 63,960 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is noninvasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer). • About 40,920 women will die from breast cancer.
