Breast Cancer Facts & Figures

Among US women in 2017, there will be an estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer, 63,410 new cases of breast carcinoma in situ, and 40,610 breast cancer deaths.

While breast cancer incidence rates are highest in non-Hispanic white women, breast cancer death rates are highest in African American women.

Statistics such as these are presented in this updated edition of the American Cancer Society’s Breast Cancer Facts and Figures, which provides data on breast cancer incidence, mortality, and survival, as well as information on risk factors, early detection, and treatment.

Please note that any reproduction or re-use should credit the appropriate American Cancer Society Breast Cancer Facts & Figures publication and include a statement of copyright and identify the data source used.

These Breast Cancer Facts & Figures publications are available for free download as full-text PDF files.
