Black Women Provide Support In Breast Cancer Fight

Dr. Patrick Kobla Quist, a retired obstetrician/Gynaecologist, says breast cancer was not a woman's disease but a disease that can equally affect and even kill men at a faster rate than women.

In the USA, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer amongst women in the U.S.

Clinical Nurse Specialist Addie Mitchell at Breast Cancer Care told The Sun that a majority of women don't regularly check their breasts, so having Alexa to guide them "will help empower many with the confidence to build this potentially lifesaving habit into their routine". Over-diagnosis and over-treatment are two major risks involved with the mammography screening.

Mobile mammogram clinics, like at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston and at the University of California, San Francisco, also offer affordable breast cancer screenings.

Studies on the best use of genetic testing for breast cancer mutations continue at a rapid pace. Raise your own awareness off it by reading one of these six memoirs about breast cancer. The nine physicians in the program screen 2,500 women each year and work to provide early detection for breast cancer, especially for women who are unable to travel for doctor appointments, Brem said.

35 women signed up and the event runs through Tuesday.

According to the medical expert, excessive intake of alcohol and tobacco can cause a tumor that can lead to breast cancer.

Stack explains his reasoning for publishing the book: "My goal in writing this book was to create a handy, easy to understand reference guide that answers the most common questions that women have about their breast health".

A significantly large percentage of patients diagnosed with breast cancer bore children before the age of 30 - 86% had their first child born before they were 30 years old, 14% had their first child after the age of 30. Her cancer went into remission several months later. In addition, when treating the disease in this example, doctors will treat the cancer as stage IV breast cancer, not as lung cancer.

Surprisingly, little correlation was found between breast cancer and smoking.

For example, without a screening, when lung cancer hits a 67 year old the five year survival rate is zero and odds are that person will succumb to the cancer by 70.

"The public needs to know that breast cancer can be cured if found and treated early." she added. Less than 15 percent of women who get breast cancer have a family member diagnosed with it. You wear it on your head the day of chemo therapy and you actually wear it 4 hours once chemo is over for that day.
