Breast Cancer Deaths

An estimated 42,410 women in the United States will die from breast cancer in 2005. It's the second leading cancer killer of women, behind only lung cancer. Older women are more likely to get breast cancer, but younger women are more likely to die from it. Breast cancer that afflicts younger women tends to be more aggressive, and younger women may be less likely to go for regular screenings, thinking that they're too young to get it. Getting screened early and often is the best way to improve your odds against breast cancer. As grim as these statistics are, the number of deaths is declining as medical science makes progress in early detection and treatment methods. Depending on age, the average five year survival rate for breast cancer patients is 81-86%. With early detection, the odds of survival approach 96%. Get screened!
