Integrated Breast Cancer Treatment Center
Both males and females are prone to getting breast cancer. However, the incidence is more common in women.
About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. For men, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000 and is about 100 times less common than woman. In 2017, an estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 63,410 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
