Mammography at Outpatient Diagnostic Center of Nashville
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers. Currently, the average risk of a woman in the United States developing breast cancer sometime in her life is about 12%. This means there is a 1 in 8 chance she will develop breast cancer.
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 non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
- About 40,920 women will die from breast cancer.
Breast cancer death rates have been declining since about 1990. This is believed to be the result of earlier detection through screening, increased awareness, and improved treatments. Mammography is the best screening tool used to find breast cancer at an early stage when it is most treatable.
