Good News about Breast Cancer       Archived


Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among females in the United States. Both in situ and invasive female breast cancer rates have been decreasing in recent years, with a sharper decline occurring from 2002 to 2003. These rate decreases have been across several age and stage groups and most racial/ethnic populations. Decreases in 2003 occurred primarily among women aged greater than or equal to 50 years. Future studies should focus on determining potential causes for these decreases. Created: 6/8/2007 by MMWR. Date Released: 9/7/2007. Series Name: A Minute of Health with CDC.
