Breast cancer is the leading cancer diagnosed in women worldwide – accounting for one in four new cancer cases. In Australia alone, over 17,000 women were diagnosed with the disease last year, with almost one quarter of cases being diagnosed before the age of 50. A greater emphasis must be placed on early prevention.
