Marin County Announces New Breast Cancer Rates

The California Cancer Registry(CCR) has released new statewide comparative breast cancer rates that show a drop in Marin County’s breast cancer incidence and mortality rates over the most recent reported five year period, 2006-2010. Marin’s breast cancer incidence rates (i.e. number of cases) remain, however, approximately 10 percent higher than California’s as a whole and about 20 percent higher than the national average.
