SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime according to health experts. In 2022, 287,850 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the United States.
A little over 43,000 women are expected to die, according to breastcancer.org.
