Breast Cancer (female)

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK.

In 2011, just under 50,000 women were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. Most women who get it (8 out of 10) are over 50, but younger women, and in rare cases, men, can also get breast cancer.

If it’s treated early enough, breast cancer can be prevented from spreading to other parts of the body.
