Breast Cancer Information and Resources

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States (other than skin cancer). But millions of women are surviving the disease thanks in part to early detection and improvements in treatment.

The American Cancer Society is actively fighting breast cancer by helping women get tested to find breast cancer earlier, and helping them understand their treatment options and cope with the physical and emotional side effects. We also fund research to help prevent, find, and treat breast cancer.

The American Cancer Society has played a role in nearly every breast cancer breakthrough in recent history. Our staff of full-time researchers produce detailed analyses of breast cancer trends and investigate the links between lifestyle and breast cancer. We also fund external researchers dedicated to finding better ways to prevent, detect, and treat the disease, and improve the quality of life of breast cancer patients and survivors.
