In a statistics report by Datamonitor Healthcare, breast cancer is projected to increase in the United States, as well as all stages of the disease. In cases involving women, a 2020 paper from the National Institutes of Health found that white women in the U.S. have a 5-year survival rate of 92% compared to 81% for Black women. The paper also found Black women are less likely to get breast cancer but more likely to die from it. For men with breast cancer, the American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) says that the current five-year survival rate is 84%.
