Help in Finding the Cure for Breast Cancer

Cancer, in general, is the leading cause of deaths worldwide. Breast cancer, in particular, is the most common cancer diagnosed in women in 2012 amounting to 23% worldwide. The latest statistics from Cancer Research UK estimates that about 1.38 million women were diagnosed with breast cancer worldwide. The incidence is generally higher in the developed countries while markedly lower in developing countries. In the same study, breast cancer has been found to be the most common cause of death from cancer in women worldwide which translates to about 480,000 deaths.

The American Cancer Society’s most recent estimates for breast cancer in the US in 2012 indicates that about 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women and about 63,300 new cases of the non-invasive variety. It states that 39,510 women will die from breast cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women in the US. It is precisely for these reasons that breast cancer cures have become all the more important.
