In this article, the American Cancer Society provides an overview of female breast cancer statistics in the United States, including trends in incidence, mortality, survival, and screening. Approximately 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 39,520 breast cancer deaths are expected to occur among US women in 2011. Breast cancer incidence rates were stable among all racial/ethnic groups from 2004 to 2008. Breast cancer death rates have been declining since the early 1990s for all women… 
Breast Cancer: Epidemiology and Etiology
E Epidemiological studies suggest that addressing socio economical issues is utmost important, so that all women have equal access to medical care from screening to advanced treatment, and only such decisive action can help reduce the worldwide burden of breast cancer.
Cancer statistics, 2016
Overall cancer incidence trends are stable in women, but declining by 3.1% per year in men, much of which is because of recent rapid declines in prostate cancer diagnoses, and brain cancer has surpassed leukemia as the leading cause of cancer death among children and adolescents.
Cancer statistics, 2015
The overall cancer death rate decreased from 215.1 (per 100,000 population) in 1991 to 168.7 in 2011, a total relative decline of 22%.
Cancer statistics for Hispanics/Latinos, 2012
Hispanics/Latinos are the largest and fastest growing major demographic group in the United States, accounting for 16.3% (50.5 million/310 million) of the US population in 2010 and have lower incidence and death rates than non‐Hispanic whites for all cancers combined and for the 4 most common cancers.
Racial disparities in surveillance mammography among older breast cancer survivors
It is found that older black BC survivors continue to experience lower rates of surveillance mammography, even after adjusting for multiple potential confounders.

The incidence rate of breast cancer in the US is clearly on rise, which is indicative of aggressive screenings and detections, and more efforts are needed to improve the prognosis of patients diagnosed at a later stage.
Trends and variations in breast and colorectal cancer incidence from 1995 to 2011: A comparative study between Texas Cancer Registry and National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results data
Comparing the temporal trends of breast and colorectal cancer incidence in Texas with those of the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) in the United States from 1995 to 2011 found coincidence rates and relative risks by age, gender and ethnicity were identical between Texas and SEER.
Trends in Breast Cancer Stage and Mortality in Michigan (1992–2009) by Race, Socioeconomic Status, and Area Healthcare Resources
In all SES and HCA area types, disparities in percent late stage between blacks and whites appeared to narrow over time, while the differences in breast cancer mortality rates between Blacks and Whites appeared to increase over time.


Ethnicity and breast cancer: factors influencing differences in incidence and outcome.
Differences in breast cancer incidence rates between most racial/ethnic groups were largely explained by risk factor distribution except in African Americans, however, breast cancers in African American women more commonly had characteristics of poor prognosis, which may contribute to their increased mortality after diagnosis.
The decrease in breast-cancer incidence in 2003 in the United States.
An initial analysis of data from the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) registries shows that the age-adjusted incidence rate of breast cancer in women in
Disparities in breast cancer prognostic factors by race, insurance status, and education
Extending health insurance coverage to all women is likely to have an effect on reducing racial disparities in the development of breast cancers with poor prognostic factors, as area-level educational attainment decreased.
Comparative analysis of breast cancer risk factors among African-American women and White women.
Effect of screening and adjuvant therapy on mortality from breast cancer.
Seven statistical models showed that both screening mammography and treatment have helped reduce the rate of death from breast cancer in the United States.
A community effort to reduce the black/white breast cancer mortality disparity in Chicago
There are significant access barriers to high quality mammography and treatment services that could be contributing to the mortality differences in Chicago.
The effect of changes in tumor size on breast carcinoma survival in the U.S.
I would encourage the authors to evaluate women ages 40 to 49 years separately from the younger women, because these are the women who have been encouraged to be screened in the United States, and it may provide greater insight into the benefits of screening that do not change suddenly at the age of 50 years, or at any other age.
Race, breast cancer subtypes, and survival in the Carolina Breast Cancer Study.
Basal-like breast tumors occurred at a higher prevalence among premenopausal African American patients compared with postmenopausal American and non-African American patients in this population-based study, and their associations with tumor size, axillary nodal status, mitotic index, nuclear pleomorphism, combined grade, p53 mutation status, and breast cancer-specific survival were examined.
Reproductive history and oral contraceptive use in relation to risk of triple-negative breast cancer.
The association between parity and breast cancer risk differs appreciably for ER+ and triple-negative breast cancers; breastfeeding and oral contraceptive use were not associated with either subtype.
Racial differences in diagnosis, treatment, and clinical delays in a population‐based study of patients with newly diagnosed breast carcinoma
Differences with respect to delays in the interval between medical consultation and the diagnosis and treatment of breast carcinoma are greater for African American women than for white women are examined.
