Breast Cancer Facts
1 in 8 U.S. women are at risk of developing breast cancer.
1 in 28 of these women are at risk of dying from breast cancer.
Over 77% of women are not diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 50. At this stage, breast cancer may not be as curable as with earlier detection. Although 97% of women diagnosed with breast cancer survive five years, up from about 70% in the 1940′s, misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose may have severe consequences. Please get tested for breast cancer.
The incidence of breast cancer in North America and Western Europe is 6 to 10 times higher than in Japan and most parts of Asia and Africa.
Breast cancer is a difficult and expensive disease to treat. It is frightening in its effect and it does not discriminate among those effected. All socio-economic groups suffer from breast cancer, though not in proportion. In reality, Caucasian women suffer more than African-American women, and poorer women are afflicted more than wealthier women. Our firm is aware of these factors and concerns, as well as the problems that can arise when a loved on is stricken with breast cancer. We also are aware of the complications associated with breast reconstruction surgery, or breast implant surgery.
