Breast cancer is a major problem for public health in the Western world, where it is the most common cancer among women. In the European Community, for example, breast cancer represents 19% of cancer deaths and fully 24% of all cancer cases. It is diagnosed in a total of 348,000 cases annually in the USA and EC [68] and kills almost 115,000 annually. Approximately 10% of women will develop breast cancer during the course of their lives.
