January 2012 The Impact of Breast Cancer The National Cancer Institute reports that one in eight women in the United States (approximately 13 percent) will develop breast cancer in her lifetime.
In fact, next to skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among U.S. women. Although the exact cause is not known, the risk of developing breast cancer increases with age. The risk is particularly high in women age 60 and older. Facts About Osteoporosis Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones become less dense and more likely to fracture. Risk factors for developing osteoporosis include: thinness or small frame family history of the disease being postmenopausal and particularly having had early menopause abnormal absence of menstrual periods (amenorrhea) prolonged use of certain medications, such as those used to treat lupus, asthma, thyroid deficiencies, and seizures low calcium intake lack of physical activity smoking excessive alcohol intake.
Resources U.S. Facts & Statistics. Fractures from osteoporosis are more common than heart attack, stroke and breast cancer combined.At least 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men will suffer from an osteoporotic fracture during their lifetime.The overall yearly cost to the Canadian healthcare system of treating osteoporosis and the fractures it causes was over $2.3 billion as of 2010.
This cost includes acute care costs, outpatient care, prescription drugs and indirect costs. This cost rises to $3.9 billion if a proportion of Canadians were assumed to be living in long-term care facilities because of osteoporosis. National Osteoporosis Foundation. A medical evaluation to diagnose osteoporosis and estimate your risk of breaking a bone may involve one or more of the following steps: Other tests that may be used to get information about your bone health, but are not used to diagnose osteoporosis include biochemical marker tests, x-rays, vertebral fracture assessments (VFAs), and bone scans.
Medical History Your healthcare provider will ask questions to better understand your risk. Physical Examination Your healthcare provider may measure you to see if you have lost height and examine your spine. Bone Density Test A bone density test is the only test that can diagnose osteoporosis before a broken bone occurs. FRAX® - The WHO Fracture Risk Assessment Tool The FRAX® tool uses information about your bone density and other risk factors for breaking a bone to estimate your 10-year fracture risk. The FRAX® tool can be used to guide treatment decisions in people who meet the following three conditions: Laboratory Tests. Diet and Lifestyle and Survival from Breast Cancer.
While diet and lifestyle have been associated with the risk of getting breast cancer, little is known about the effect of diet and lifestyle on breast cancer survival.
Understanding the consequences of diet and lifestyle on breast cancer survival is important to survivors of breast cancer who want to make choices to improve the length and quality of their lives. Far too little is known about the effects of diet and lifestyle after diagnosis on breast cancer survival. Nonetheless, the results of studies examining these effects are promising although still preliminary. Survival rates for breast cancer. Some people with cancer may want to know the survival rates for their type of cancer.
Others may not find the numbers helpful, or may even not want to know them. Whether or not you want to read about survival rates is up to you. If you decide that you do not want to read about them, skip to the next section. The 5-year survival rate refers to the percentage of patients who live at least 5 years after their cancer is found. Of course, many people live much longer than 5 years. These numbers are based on women treated a number of years ago. While these numbers provide an overall picture, keep in mind that every woman is different and the statistics can't predict exactly what will happen to you.
Breast cancer survival statistics. As with the majority of cancers, relative survival for breast cancer is improving.
This can generally be attributed to faster diagnosis due to improvements in treatment, raised awareness and the NHS Screening Program.9 However, there is still scope for improvement and increasing cancer survival remains a major priority of Improving Outcomes: A Strategy for Cancer.10 An outcome of this Strategy is the National Awareness and Early Diagnosis Initiative (NAEDI), which is a public sector/third sector partnership between the Department of Health, National Cancer Action Team, and Cancer Research UK.
The role of NAEDI is to promote the earlier diagnosis of cancer, and this will involve researching ways to further improve survival from breast cancer. One-year relative survival has been used as an indicator of early diagnosis, since death before one year is likely to be due to the disease being diagnosed at a late stage. Download this chart.

April 15, 2014 The CUP database is being kept up to date with all relevant papers from randomised controlled trials and cohort studies published. In July 2013 the database contained 4161 papers on cancers of the breast, colorectum, prostate, pancreas, endometrium, ovary, bladder, kidney, liver, gallbladder, lung, oesophagus and stomach; and polyps and breast cancer survivors. This includes 3683 papers on the different cancers, 146 papers on polyps, and 332 papers on breast cancer survivors. Different cancers The database contains 3683 papers on cancer prevention, including 3566 papers from cohort studies and 117 papers from randomised controlled trials, as shown in the charts below.

El mantener los huesos saludables y fuertes es un tema que causa preocupaciones en todas las mujeres, pero especialmente en las sobrevivientes del cáncer de mama, ya que algunos tratamientos de esta enfermedad pueden ocasionar la pérdida ósea.
Si conoce los factores que pueden incrementar el riesgo de desarrollar osteoporosis (una enfermedad que adelgaza y debilita los huesos, lo cual hace que se vuelvan muy frágiles), puede tomar las medidas correspondientes para prevenir o disminuir la pérdida ósea. Por qué es posible que tenga un riesgo mayor. Breast cancer survival rates by stage. Survival rates are often used by doctors as a standard way of discussing a person's prognosis (outlook).
Some patients with breast cancer may want to know the survival statistics for people in similar situations, while others may not find the numbers helpful, or may even not want to know them. If you decide that you do not want to read them, skip to the next section. The 5-year observed survival rate refers to the percentage of patients who live at least 5 years after being diagnosed with cancer. Many of these patients live much longer than 5 years after diagnosis. A relative survival rate (like the numbers below) compares the observed survival with what would be expected for people without the cancer.
In order to get 5-year survival rates, doctors have to look at people who were treated at least 5 years ago. Survival rates are often based on previous outcomes of large numbers of people who had the disease, but they cannot predict what will happen in any particular person's case.
