Breast Cancer Screenings In Greensboro”

Ms. Shontrice Patillo, a breast cancer survivor, has linked with the Black Health Care Coalition to share her story of wellness and faith with African American women during this month and beyond.

If you can't afford insurance right now and don't have it, you can get a free breast cancer screening at the Manderson Cancer center at DCH on the 16th.

They believe it could help to reduce the number of women required to undergo a mastectomy by around a third.

Jules Fashion Accessories will be donating 10% of the week's takings, from Monday, October 16, to the Breast Cancer Unit at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital.

Experts said the biggest breast cancer myth that keeps women from getting checked out is if it doesn't run in the family, you're not at risk which is false. Even though breast cancer affects men as well, less than 1% of all breast cancer develops in males.

The annual fundraising campaign has raised £30 million to date for Breast Cancer Now's life-saving research.

The study's findings also revealed that women who underwent bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction had almost eight times the risk of missing over a month of work, as compared with those who underwent lumpectomy.

Lester Barr, chairman of charity Prevent Breast Cancer, which partly funded the research, said: "With more accurate genetic testing, we can better predict a woman's risk of developing the disease and therefore offer the appropriate advice and support, rather than a "one size fits all" approach". They hope to improve the gene test to include more variants that contribute to breast cancer chances.
