A breast cancer diagnosis can be devastating. The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that before 2016 has ended, there will be a total of around 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed in women and that about 40,450 women will die.

Death rates from breast cancer have been dropping since about 1989, with larger decreases in women younger than 50, ACS reports.
