Brides Against Breast Cancer

Majestic Bridal Extravaganza Is Doing Its Part In 2014 To
Break These Breast Cancer Statistics.... Will You Do Yours ?!

  • Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women and the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.

  • One out of eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer if they live past the age of 85, a risk that in 1960 was one out of 14.

  • An estimated 212,920 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to occur among women in the US during 2007. (This does not take DCIS into account). About 2,030 new cases of breast cancer are expected in men.

  • An estimated 40,910 breast cancer deaths are anticipated this year (40,460 women, 450 men).

  • The estimated number of new cases of female invasive breast cancer has gone down by about 16 percent from last year’s estimates and the number of male cases has gone up by 15 percent.

  • The ACS states that after continuously increasing for more than two decades, female breast cancer incidence rates leveled off from 2001-2003. One possible reason for the change is that millions of women stopped taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT), and early data showed a drop in breast cancer incidence at the same time. As we get more information in subsequent years, the trend could continue. Other possible factors could be that women became better educated about breast care and are getting diagnosed in a more timely fashion.

  • Seventy percent of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history.

  • More than 80 percent of breast lumps are benign (not cancerous).
