and the taken.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States. It is so common that over 12% of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer within their lifetime.
Our office fits within those statistics, even with only a handful of women in the office. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, it is estimated that almost 290,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in 2022. They are also an estimated 50,000+ new cases of non-invasive breast cancer expected by the end of the year.
An estimated 43,550 women will die from breast cancer this year in the United States alone.
It is rare, but not impossible, for men to be diagnosed with breast cancer as well. It is estimated that almost 3,000 men will be diagnosed this year and over 500 will die from this horrendous disease in 2022.
Prevention & early detection is key!
