    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, in 2022 there will be an estimated 287,000 new invasive breast cancer diagnoses in the United States. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Outside of skin cancer, breast cancer is the most diagnosed form of cancer in women. It also is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. 

    The WHA Information Center analyzed data from 2017-2022 for breast cancer visits. The place of service with the highest visit count is other lab services. There is a definite drop in visits during the stay-at-home orders were in place for COVID-19. Since then, there is a steep increase in visits since the second quarter of 2020. The average age of a patient is 62 years old. While most patients seen for breast cancer are female, there is about one percent of claims that are visits seeing a male patient. The majority of patients were seen in outpatient lab and radiology visits followed by other outpatient services.
