Anyone can get breast cancer. For example, did you know...
• The older a woman is, the more likely she is to get breast cancer?
• White women are more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer than any other racial or ethnic group? They also have a better chance of survival, primarily because their cancer is usually detected earlier.
• African American women are more likely to die from breast cancer that white women.
• In 2001, it is estimated that men will account for 1,500 cases of breast cancer.
