With apologies to all sufferers, female breast cancer is actually not one of the most lethal, however it is the most prevalent of all cancers although it overwhelmingly affects women, see Female Breast Cancer – Cancer Stat Facts.
The survival rate of FBC is near 90% after 5 years, not very far from skin melanoma, which is today one of the easiest cancer to cure (the easiest is thyroid cancer). There are effective and not very invasive screening programs in place, and the medical community has made steady progress with surgery, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and radiation therapy. With these in place, although the surgery is disfiguring, it is usually a feasible option.

In contrast, the 5 years survival rate of lung cancer is 16%. Pancreas cancer 5 years survival rate is only 8%. These cancers are hard to spot, and very hard to cure. There is usually no surgery option for pancreas, and when there is, it is extremely dangerous. Even today, surgery is the #1 option for curing most cancer.
In terms of the number of deaths, in the US, FBC is responsible for 40,000 death per year, whereas lung cancers kill 150,000 people annually.
Of course the reality is that FBC is still very lethal, there is no cure, every sufferer is in for months or years of grueling treatments, and it is a huge societal issue. We need to make more progress.
