Breast cancer cases are expected to rise in coming years, according a study by the National Cancer Institute. Researchers predict 40 million American women born between 1946 and 1964 will be at risk of developing post-menopausal breast cancer in the next several years, according to the study, presented in April at the American Association for Cancer Research’s annual meeting.

The study also showed an additional 56 million women in their 20s and 30s will have a substantial risk of premenopausal breast cancer, at 0.4% to 1.5% over a 10-year period.
