The chance that breast cancer will be responsible for a woman’s death is about 1 in 35 (about 3 percent). Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1990, with larger decreases in women younger than 50. These decreases are believed to be the result of earlier detection through screening and increased awareness, as well as improved treatment.

The Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons has awarded another three-year re-accreditation with commendation to Marshall’s Cancer Program. “Approval by the CoC is given only to those facilities that have committed to providing the best in cancer diagnosis and treatment and are able to comply with the CoC standards,” said Marshall’s Manager of Cancer Services Annette Glass.
