Over 1 million people are diagnosed with cancer each year. Approximately 1 out of every 2 American men and 1 out of every 3 American women will have some type of cancer during their lifetime.
Today, millions of people are living with cancer or have been cured of the disease. Early detection is an important weapon in the fight against cancer. The sooner a cancer is found and treatment begins, the better the patients’ chance for survival and/or a cure.
