The National Cancer Institute estimates that 207,090 women and 1,970 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010.  Approximately one in eight women will be diagnosed with cancer of the breast during their lifetime.  At this time, there are more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S.  This includes women still being treated and those who have completed treatment.

Breast cancer is a type of cancer where cells in the breast divide and grow without normal control. About 85 percent of breast cancers begin in the mammary ducts, while about 15 percent arise in the lobules [3]. Tumors in the breast tend to grow slowly. By the time a lump is large enough to feel, it may have been growing for as long as 10 years. However, some tumors can be aggressive, and grow much more rapidly.

The best way to find breast cancer early is with a mammogram. If you are a woman age 50 years or older, be sure to have a screening mammogram every two years.
