About Breast Cancer


Breast cancer is the leading cancer among American women and is second only to lung cancer in cancer deaths. This year in the United States, 182,460 women and 1,990 men will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer and 40,480 women and 450 men will die from the disease. When breast cancer is found early, and confined to the breast, chances for survival are the greatest. Early detection saves lives!


On average 96% women who are diagnosed with breast cancer at the Norma J. Vinger Center for Breast Care have their cancer diagnosed with a needle biopsy as opposed to a surgical biopsy. They receive their results in about 24 hours with an appointment with a surgeon within 48 more hours.
