How manny people die from breast cancer every year?
just wondering

Memere RN/BA
Here are the statistics from the Susan G. Komen Org. "Today, there are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. However, Despite the magnificent achievements, breast cancer remains a sad reality in the African American Community. Although African American women are less likely to develop breast cancer than other women, they are more likely to die from it. Today, African Americans have the highest death rate from breast cancer of any racial or ethnic group in the U.S.. It is the second leading cause of death for African American women. with lower probabilities for survival than white women." They don't give a number, but it seems more survive than die on the whole.

In the US, an average of around 40900. That's an average of 112 per day, or one every 15 minutes.

In the UK, an average of 33 women die each day from breast cancer; that's around 12000 each year.
