CDC. Aug 13, 2010. The risk of getting breast cancer increases with age. The table below
shows the percentage of women (how many out of 100) who will get breast
cancer over different time periods. The time periods are based on the
woman's current age.
For example, go to current age 60. The table shows 3.45% of women who
are now 60 years old will get breast cancer sometime during the next 10
years. That is, 3 or 4 out of every 100 women who are 60 years old
today will get breast cancer by the age of 70.
