Next to skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women in the United States. Although it can also occur in men, it isn’t as common.
Breast cancer is a complex disease with many different types and categories, meaning it isn’t the same for everyone who is diagnosed with it. Fortunately, decades of extensive clinical research conducted on breast cancer have made it possible for breast cancer patients to receive the treatments best suited to the specific type of breast cancer they have.
Routine breast cancer screening also plays a big role in breast cancer. Because screening is so widely available to women, breast cancer is often detected at an earlier stage, leading to better outcomes.
