Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and second leading cause of cancer death in Canada. In 2024, it is projected that 30,500 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 5,500 Canadian women will die from breast cancer.1 Early detection is important because the earlier that breast cancer is detected, the better treatment outcomes can be. Bayer is cooperating with breast cancer groups around the world to drive awareness and early detection. With the right information about risk factors and screening options, you can take charge of your breast health.
