Breast Cancer Awareness

Just an FYI:

“Breast Cancer Awareness Month can be a good reminder to learn more about breast cancer, the risk factors for you and those you love — and how to minimize them — and the importance of being screened for the disease.”

Here are some statistics:

• 2022 in the United States, it’s estimated that 43,780 people — 43,250 women and 530 men — are going to die from breast cancer.

• According to the CDC, about 9% of all new cases of breast cancer in the U.S. are found in women younger than 45; breast cancer risk increases as women get older.

• Black women are less likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer than white women, but are 41% more likely to die from the disease.

“About 170,000 people in the United States are living with metastatic breast cancer.”
