About Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, accounting for nearly 1 of every 3 cancers diagnosed. Despite the overall decline in breast cancer mortality over the past decade, more than 40,000 deaths will be attributed to the disease in 2007 alone. Tremendous strides are made regularly in the treatment of both hormone-positive and hormone-negative disease, as well as for patients with specific tumor subtypes (eg, HER2 overexpressing tumors), posing a challenge to the clinician who must stay up to date on the most recent advances in breast cancer therapy.
