About Breast Cancer
Breast cancer is a type of cancer where cells in the breast tissue divide and grow without normal control. It is a widespread and random disease, striking women and men of all ages and races. It is estimated that more than 1.7 million new cases of breast cancer occurred among women worldwide in 2012. The exact cause of the disease is unknown, and at this time there is no cure.
But there is hope. Thanks to heightened awareness, early detection through screening, improved treatment methods, and increased access to breast health services, people have a greater chance of survival than ever before.
The Susan G. Komen® national website, www.komen.org, offers comprehensive information about breast cancer risk factors, early detection and screening, diagnosis, and treatment. Developed in conjunction with the Harvard School of Public Health, the site offers a one-stop resource for all the latest information on the disease.
