Breast Cancer Statistics


According to the CDC:

Not counting some kinds of skin cancer, breast cancer in the United States is—

  • The most common cancer in women, no matter your race or ethnicity.
  • The most common cause of death from cancer among Hispanic women.
  • The second most common cause of death from cancer among white, black, Asian/Pacific Islander, and American Indian/Alaska Native women.

According to the BreastCancer.org:

  • Approximately 1 out of every 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in their lifetimes.
  • Less than 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family member who was diagnosed with it.
  • Approximately 85% of breast cancers happen in women who have no family history of the disease.

According to Susan G. Komen:

  • Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in pregnant and postpartum women and typically occurs between the ages of 32 and 38.
  • The overall median age at diagnosis for women in the U.S. is 62 years. 
  • Race and ethnicity vary for women in the U.S.  who get breast cancer.
