BREAST CANCER INFORMATION

Breast cancer continues to be one of the biggest health problems faced by women today. The American Cancer Society estimates more than 1500 Americans will die of cancer every day this year, and breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among women.

The good news is survival rates for breast cancer continue to increase, and exciting new research about susceptibility genes for breast cancer is also in progress. Study is ongoing to learn about the complex characteristics of these genes and evaluate their contribution to the incidence of breast cancer.
