Breast cancer remains the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK, with around 55,000 cases diagnosed in the UK in 2015, and a projected estimate of over 71,000 cases forecast by 2035. Despite the increase in diagnosed cases, mortality rates are decreasing, with ten-year survival rates at an all-time high and 78% of women surviving ten years or more compared with just over 40% back in the early 1970s. This is primarily due to screening, education surrounding self-examination and better treatment options including therapies targeted to specific breast cancer subtypes.
