Here are some key statistics about breast cancer, according to the American Cancer Society:


  • In the U.S., there are 4,750 new cases of breast cancer each day.
  • It is the most common cancer for women, other than skin cancer.
  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women (only lung cancer kills more women each year).
  • Death rates from female breast cancer dropped 39% from 1989-2015—believed to be the result of finding breast cancer earlier through screening and increased awareness, as well as better treatments.
  • Men can also be diagnosed with breast cancer, although it’s not nearly as common. As a comparison, the ACS estimates that there will be 2,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed in men versus 266,120 in women.
