To achieve my goal, I collected data from the American Cancer Society of both the suicidal rates and aggressive breast cancer rate from thirty states in United States randomly. This data is more recent (2010).
Breast cancer is one of the most fatal and prevalent of all killer diseases and ranks in the top three killers of women in the USA, though it also affects men. Meanwhile there has been an association of the aggressive breast cancer with suicides in the United States. In this study, I will conduct statistical test to verify this relationship of aggressive breast cancer with rates of suicides. My hypothetical theory is that victims of the aggressive breast cancer are more prone to commit suicide. I anchor my theory to the worrying trend of the increasing mental anxiety and depression among the aggressive breast cancer patients.
To achieve my objective of linking suicide rates to aggressive breast cancer condition, I collected data for the suicides rates and aggressive breast cancer from thirty states. I subjected this data to statistical analysis to establish a link in these two variables. These states were collected randomly.

Breast cancer is a major cause for morbidity and mortality of women worldwide.

Among Canadian women, breast cancer accounts for 28 percent of cancer cases. According to Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (2011), "in 2011, an estimated 23,400 women in Canada will be diagnosed with breast cancer, an increase of 200 from 2010. On average, 450 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer every week." The rise in public awareness has improved screening and has facilitated earlier diagnosis, at stages when curative therapies and complete surgical resection is possible.
Studies reveal that tumorigenesis is responsible for proliferation of cancer. In case of breast cancer a variety of proto-oncogenes, such as c-myc, c-erbB-2/neu have been identified. After the human genomic project, research has taken new paradigms to understand the gene-expression and analysis.
Age is one of the most important risk factor associated with this disease. Therefore, the incidences are increasing steadily as improvement in the health care facilities has raised the average life expectancy mostly in the developed countries. Cancer is a chronic disease and most of the victims experience a painful death.
