Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. It is also the second most common cancer worldwide behind lung cancer; with approximately 1.7 million new breast cancer cases diagnosed in 2012*, with an increase to 2.08 million new cases diagnosed in 2018.** As a global health issue, continued research on breast cancer is of the utmost importance.
