Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer in women and the second most common cancer overall, with 2 million new cases diagnosed in 2018.* As a global health issue, continued research on breast cancer is of the utmost importance.

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Springer Nature is proud to present carefully curated collections on breast cancer from our authors and editors, as well as over 70 articles and chapters from across our research portfolios. We hope you enjoy exploring our featured content and encourage you to share these articles with your colleagues.

All content is free to read through October 31 2019. Open access articles and book chapters are freely available at any time.
