HER-2 Positive Breast Cancer Market in the US 2015-2019
About HER-2 Positive Breast Cancer
Breast cancer is characterized by uncontrolled growth of cancerous cells in the breast. It occurs in both males and females, however, the incidence of breast cancer in males is rare. Histologically, breast cancer can be classified into ductal carcinoma, lobular carcinoma, nipple cancer, and other undifferentiated carcinoma. Breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer in women. HER-2 is a protein that affects the growth of malignant cells and is usually found on the surface of normal breast cells. Sometimes, a large number of HER-2 receptors are found on the surface of breast cancer cells. These HER-2 receptors are responsible for stimulating the growth and division of malignant cancerous cells. This condition is therefore known as HER-2 positive breast cancer. HER-2 positive breast cancers have a tendency to spread and metastasize more rapidly than HER-2 negative breast cancers. HER-2 positive breast cancer is more prevalent in females than males. In 2012, GLOBOCAN reported that breast cancer accounted for 11.9 percent of the total number of cancer cases and led to 522,000 deaths worldwide. HER-2 positive breast cancer accounts for almost 25 percent of all types of breast cancer.
