Did you know…

Breast Cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among black women, and an estimated 30,700 new cases are expected to be diagnosed each year. Similar to the pattern among white women, breast cancer incidence rates among black women increased rapidly during much of the 1980s, largely due to increased detection by mammography screening. However, while rates thereafter generally stabilized in white women they continued to increase in black women.

The continued increase in incidence rates in black women may in part reflect the rising prevalence of obesityAll women can help reduce their risk of breast cancer by avoiding weight gain and obesity, engaging in regular physical activity, and minimizing alcohol  intake. Women should consider the increased risk of breast cancer associated with combined estrogen and progestin hormone therapy use when evaluating treatment options for menopausal symptoms.
