Title: Breast Cancer in Women: Know the Subtype
Description: There are different subtypes of women's breast cancer. Knowing which subtype is important for guiding treatment and predicting survival. This graphic was created for the Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer, 1975-2011, published in 2015. The 2015 report included data on national breast cancer incidence rates by demographic and tumor characteristics for the four intrinsic molecular subtypes. Demographic characteristics included race/ethnicity, age, and poverty status (based on the percentage of the population living below the poverty line). All rates in the report are per 100,000 people in the US population.
