Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and the fourth most common cause of death from cancer.
 

Much progress has been made in understanding the causes of breast cancer, but few options for prevention at the population level exist.

Early detection by mammography has proven to lower mortality, especially for women over 50 years, but not all women access screening services equally. Work is still needed to decrease disparities among lower socioeconomic status women.
