In the Pink offers items for women living with cancer

In the Pink offers items for women living with cancer”

There are now more than 2.8 million women with a history of breast cancer in America.

The latest data from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) show that there are 2.1 million cases of breast cancer each year, with more than 626,000 recorded deaths as of 2018.

"It gives me great pleasure to join hands with an organization and initiative that is working on a grassroots level to help educate and in turn eradicate breast cancer". Breasts are made up of fat, breast tissue and connective tissue.

Dr Daniel Asare, Chief Executive Officer (KBTH), said breast, though admirable, it is also a seat of disease that could kill adding regular screening, early detection and early treatment are the sure ways to demystify the fear surrounding the disease. Women over 40 should talk to their doctor about their risk for breast cancer and when they should schedule a mammogram.

Susan G. Komen for OR and Southwest Washington said it's goal for 2018 is to focus on research into aggressive forms of breast cancer, better help women with health disparities and put forth more research into technology that will better detect the cancer.

"We are encouraging women to not allow fear to prevent them from seeking medical help".

In fact, some studies indicate mastectomy of healthy breasts reduces your risk of breast cancer by more than 90 percent.

Women can consult with their physicians, who can make recommendations based on personal risk factors such as family history.

It's a disease that's close to Sattwhite's heart: His sister is a breast cancer survivor, he said.

Approximately 10 per cent of women are considered to have extremely dense breasts while about 80 per cent have density in the middle two categories.

Jennie Dale, Dense Breasts Canada co-founder, said that over 400,000 women in BC possess dense breasts, without being aware of the potential risks.

Compare that to women without the mutation who have only a 12 percent lifetime risk.

BC Cancer Breast Screening provides free screening mammograms for eligible BC women age 40 and up. You'll want to find a bra that's comfortable, and easy to get on and off.

Breast density is determined by a mammogram and is not associated with how large or how lumpy a woman's breasts are during self-examination of the breasts.

"The modalities for preventing, and controlling breast cancer are well known". "We're big proponents of the new professional image policy, and a lot of staff love that".
