The number of women dying from cancer is expected to more than double worldwide in the next 14 years, according to the American Cancer Society.
Breast cancer in the deadliest form of cancer among women, but the report found 5.5 million women will die from any type of cancer by the year 2030; a 60 percent increase in less than 20 years.
The survival rate of breast cancer is dependent on early detection and treatment, which varies from country to country.
The American Cancer Society said the massive increase in deaths will mostly come from low and middle income countries where health care is not easily accessible.
Doctors are urging developing countries to take some basic steps to end the trend, such as promoting self breast exams and campaign against smoking.
