Predict Breast Cancer

About 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer throughout their lifetime. Prevent it by identifying potential signs at an early stage.


Breast cancer remains a significant health concern as the most prominent cancer diagnosed in women, aside from non-melanoma skin cancers. Estimated figures for 2022 indicate that 281,360 cases of invasive breast cancer and an additional 48,930 in situ cases will emerge in the U.S., with a projected 43,240 fatalities (1). While typically more prevalent in women, breast cancer also affects men, with risk factors ranging from genetic predispositions and advanced age to lifestyle influences like obesity and alcohol consumption (2). Early detection is critical, with recommended screening techniques such as mammography and MRI pivotal in identifying cancer at treatable stages. Breast cancer's potential to metastasize heightens the urgency for prompt intervention, guided by a variety of treatments tailored to the stage and specifics of each case. With roughly 1 in 8 women (12%) developing invasive breast cancer in their lifetimes and 75% of diagnoses occurring post-55 years of age, it underscores the importance of ongoing research, effective treatment options, and comprehensive support systems for those affected (3)(4).

Why it matters

  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, with an estimated 281,360 invasive cases and 48,930 in situ cases in the U.S. in 2022, and 43,240 projected deaths.
  • It affects both women and men, with risk factors including genetics, age, obesity, and alcohol consumption.
  • Early detection through mammography and MRI is vital, as 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, with 75% of cases occurring after age 55, emphasizing the need for research and effective treatment options.
