Breast cancer is a complex disease that will affect 1 in 9 Canadian women during their lifetime.
The risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer increases with age. In 2015, it is estimated that 82% of new breast cancer cases will would occur in Canadian women over the age of 50:
52 percent of breast cancers will be diagnosed in women 50 to 69 years of age
30 percent of breast cancers will be diagnosed in women over the age of 69
About 1 in 5 breast cancers (18%) will be diagnosed in women less than 50 years of age. For women 30 to 49 years of age, the risk of being diagnosed with any type of cancer is 0.2 percent (or 1 in 500). While this risk is very low, about 36 percent of cancers diagnosed in this age group will be breast cancer.
