Breast Cancer in Numbers

Breast Cancer in Numbers

Did you know that…

99% of women have a survival rate of more than 5 years when they detect breast cancer early and it’s still confined to the breast.

40% of breast cancers are first detected by self-exams.

40 is the age when all women should start having annual mammograms. If you are younger but have a family history of breast cancer, check with your doctor about starting them sooner.

Women aged 30 to 39 should have a clinical breast exam performed by a gynecologist every three years—and once per year after 40.

10-19 hours of exercise a week can lower your breast cancer risk up to 30%.

Just under 3 million women who have won the battle with breast cancer live in the US.

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
