According to the World Health Organization, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide, affecting both developed and developing countries. Globally, nearly 1.7 million new breast cancer cases were diagnosed in 2012. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in American women, and the risk that a woman in the United States will develop breast cancer in her lifetime is about 12%. Approximately 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed each year in the US. For women recently diagnosed with breast cancer, the diagnosis carries with it a lot of fear and uncertainty. However, the community of breast cancer patients, caregivers, and survivors is strong, and there are many resources to help both patients and families deal with diagnoses and life with breast cancer. If you’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer, your physician is the best person to guide your treatment and care.
