Nurse With Woman Preparing for MammogramOther than skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. About one in eight women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.

In 2022, an estimated 287,850 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 51,400 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. About 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer, so breast care is an essential component of every woman's wellness plan.
