An American woman's chances of developing breast cancer are slightly higher than her British counterpart - but she is far more likely to survive.

One U.S. woman in eight can expect to have the disease at some point in her life, compared with one in nine in Britain.

But five-year survival rates for all forms of the disease - including the most advanced - stand at 85 per cent in the U.S and just under 74 per cent in the UK. If the cancer is caught early - at what doctors call stage 1 - the differences in survival are even more shocking.

An American woman has a 97 per cent chance of being alive five years after diagnosis.

In Britain, this figure is only 78 per cent.
But according to you, the UK's "Health Care" is better 'cuz more American women develop Breast Cancer. Cool story bro.
