Statitstics of Breast Cancer

10/02/2002

Question:

Are there any current statistics and incidence of breast cancer?

Answer:

The most current statistics, using the national SEER database, can be found at the following website: http://seer.cancer.gov/csr/1973_1999/breast.pdf This will require the use of an Adobe Reader, which is freely available. I believe the information you are looking for can be found in Table IV-9, Breast cancer lifetime risk of diagnosis and lifetime risk of death. Please let us know if this information does not meet your needs. Thank you for your question.
