Dr Phillip Rosenberg - Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, National Cancer Institute, USA

Dr Rosenberg talks to ecancertv at AACR 2015 about how the total number of breast cancer cases in the United States is forecast to be 50 percent greater in 2030 than it was in 2011, when invasive and in-situ or screening-detected cancers are counted together.

This increase is driven mostly by a marked increase in cases of oestrogen receptor (ER)–positive tumours and in women older than 70.
