The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently published the latest global data on 36 cancers in 185 countries incidence and mortality. As a Thermoncology community, we believe this information is crucial for understanding the current state of breast cancer worldwide. Here are the key highlights:

  • In 2022, female breast cancer was the second most common cancer globally, with an estimated 2.3 million new cases, accounting for 11.6% of all cancer cases.
  • It was also the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, with 666,000 deaths, making up 6.9% of all cancer deaths.
  • Among women, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of cancer deaths globally and in 157 countries for incidence and 112 countries for mortality.

  • Incidence rates are highest in transitioned countries like North America, Northern Europe, and Australia/New Zealand, with France having the highest rates.
  • Transitioning countries, especially in South America, Africa, and Asia, have rapidly increasing incidence and mortality rates.
  • There is a significant disparity in mortality rates between transitioned and transitioning countries. Transitioned countries have lower mortality rates despite higher incidence, reflecting better health infrastructure and early detection programs. Many sub-Saharan African countries have high mortality rates due to weak health systems and late presentation of cases.

  • Higher incidence in transitioned countries is linked to reproductive and lifestyle factors such as early menarche, late menopause, fewer children, less breastfeeding, hormone replacement therapy, oral contraceptives, alcohol intake, excess body weight, and physical inactivity.
  • In transitioning countries, the rise in breast cancer incidence and mortality is associated with changing reproductive behaviors, lifestyle factors, and limited access to early detection and treatment services.

  • Primary prevention strategies focus on reducing excess body weight, alcohol consumption, and promoting breastfeeding.
  • The focus of breast cancer control is on early diagnosis/screening and timely, comprehensive cancer management.
  • The WHO recommends organized, population-based mammography screening every two years for women aged 50-69 in well-resourced settings. In limited-resource settings, the focus is on early diagnosis and effective treatment of symptomatic cases.
  • The Global Breast Cancer Initiative, established by WHO in 2021, aims to reduce breast cancer mortality by 2.5% per year, potentially saving 2.5 million lives over two decades, through health promotion, early detection, and comprehensive breast cancer management.
