Breast cancer

Breast cancer is cancer of breast tissue.

Worldwide, it is the most common form of cancer in females, affecting approximately 1 out of 11-12 women at some stage of their life in the Western world.

Although significant efforts are made to achieve early detection and effective treatment, about 20% of all women with breast cancer will die from the disease, and it is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in women.
