About Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer is a complex disease with no known single cause. In 2013, it is estimated that 23,800 women and 200 men in Canada will be diagnosed with the disease.  

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation has developed this section of the website for people who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, their family, friends and care providers, and anyone interested in learning more about the disease. 

The content has been compiled from a variety of current and evidence-based sources. It provides comprehensive overviews of a wide range of breast cancer topics, as well as links to resources for more information and support. Content will be updated on a regular basis as new information becomes available.
