In case you were wondering about the status of breast cancer, the following statistics were provided by the Northeast Ohio affiliate of Komen for the Cure.

An estimated 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to occur among women in the U.S. during 2010.

About 1,970 new cases of breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in the U.S. in 2010.

In addition to invasive breast cancer, 54,010 new cases of in situ breast cancer are expected to occur among women in the U.S. during 2010.

Breast cancer is second only to lung cancer in cancer deaths among women in the U.S.

About 39,840 women in the U.S. are expected to die from breast cancer in 2010.

An estimated 390 men in the U.S. are expected to die from breast cancer in 2010.

According to the National Health Interview Survey, mammography rates in women 40 and older in the U.S. decreased from 70.1 percent in 2000 to 66.4 percent in 2005.

Only 51.2 percent of women 40 and older in the U.S. reported having a mammogram in the last year.

Recent studies suggest that many women in the U.S. are getting their first mammogram later than recommended, not having mammograms at recommended intervals or not receiving appropriate and timely follow-up of positive screening results. This may lead to more advanced tumor size and stage at diagnosis.
