Brustkrebs ist in den meisten industrialisierten Ländern das häufigste Karzinom der Frau. Weltweit werden pro Jahr etwa 1 Mio. Frauen mit Brustkrebs diagnostiziert (Kelsey u. Horn-Ross 1993). Das Risiko für Frauen, im Lauf ihres Lebens an Brustkrebs zu erkranken, beträgt etwa 10–12%. Etwa 50% der Brustkrebsfälle treten nach dem 60. Lebensjahr auf und sind durch das Lebensalter bzw. verschiedenste Risikofaktoren bedingt.
