A Womans Health has been working to increase the public understanding of breast cancer, raise awareness of the importance of screening and prevention, and facilitate access to new treatment options and improve survivorship since 1997. The American Cancer Society estimates that over 210,000 individuals will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States during 2021, with approximately 2,000 new cases expected in men. After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women.(1)
