Breast cancer accounts for approximately 30 percent of all new cancers in the United States. Estimates show 288,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed annually. Risk for breast cancer increases with age, but is also dependent on other factors such as genetic mutations, health history, etc. Breast cancer variations also occur depending on race and ethnicity.
