Breast cancer risks

October 17, 2012

One in eight women will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. This year alone, 227,000 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and 40,000 will die.

Women are surviving thanks to early detection, successful treatments and ongoing research trials.

Ali Conlin, M.D., Providence Cancer Center oncologist and researcher, speaks to the importance of knowing your cancer risks – what you can change and what you can’t.
