Breast Cancer Information

The need to get your mammogram is great!

Early detection is a key to surviving the disease: When breast cancer is detected early, the 5-year relative survival rate is 98 percent, but declines to 84 percent for regional disease and 23 percent when cancer has spread to other parts of the body. Unfortunately, we see racial, ethnic, geographic and socio-economic disparities in access to breast health care, which in turn leads to disparities in survival rates.

Breast Cancer Facts

  • Nearly 40,000 women and 500 men die annually as a result of breast cancer.

  • One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lives.
  • Breast cancer in men younger than 40 years of age appears to be on the rise.
