World Breast Cancer Day is observed every October 19. A day to follow-up of the commitment of the soceity in the fight against this type of cancer. In Spain 1 of every 8 women will suffer form it according to the last information of the Spanish Association Against Cancer (known by its acronym in Spanish AECC). In fact, every year about 25.000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed. Undoubtedly, it constitutes one of the greatest social worries and the forecast is an increase of 11 % and of 17 % for 2020 and 2025, respectively, will take place.
A chance for hope
Nevertheless, not all the data throw negative forecasts. Regarding information of survival, AECC assures “survival for breast cancer has improved notably in the last 20 years (the survival-rate rises every year 1,4%). Every year we have more information to prematurely diagnose and to treat breast cancer, which has enabled the global survival to be 82,8 % in our country after 5 years of the diagnosis”. A reason for hope for the whole citizenship and a compelling reason to continue betting for investigation.
