The number of breast cancers suffered by American women will increase by about 50 percent by 2030, researchers from the National Cancer Institute reported Monday.

Breast cancers already are the most common form of cancer in the United States, with 283,000 diagnosed cases in 2011. That number is predicted to rise to about 441,000 in 2030, according to Philip Rosenberg, a senior investigator in the division of cancer epidemiology and genetics at the National Cancer Institute.
