According to the American Cancer Society, about one in eight women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. The ACS estimated that 290,170 new cases of breast cancer (in situ and invasive cancers) were diagnosed among women in 2012. They project that 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed this year. The ACS estimates that about 39,620 women will die from breast cancer in 2013.
