Rhode Island has the 3rd Highest Rate of Breast Cancer

Did you know Rhode Island has the third-highest rate of breast cancer in the country? 1 in 6 Rhode Island women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and 130 Rhode Island women will die each year—our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, friends and colleagues.

ALL WOMEN CAN GET BREAST CANCER, EVEN WITHOUT A FAMILY HISTORY. IN FACT, 75% OF DIAGNOSED PATIENTS HAVE NO FAMILY HISTORY.

While no one knows the precise cause of breast cancer, smoking, drinking, overexposure to the sun, hormone replacement and exposure to insecticides are all risk factors.
