India needs more awareness to prevent mortality through breast cancer

India needs more awareness to prevent mortality through breast cancer”

"We lose high school students to inflammatory breast cancer every year and a lot of that is because they're not comfortable, so I think part of education is getting people comfortable with understanding what's normal and what's abnormal", Van Golen says.

During National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control wants to remind women of the importance of identifying breast cancer as early as possible.

Plus, only mutations in certain genes qualify women for breast MRI in addition to mammograms for screening and early cancer detection.

In a subgroup of PD-L1-positive patients, median PFS also favored the combination, 7.5 months versus 5.0 months. BCN provides breast and cervical cancer screenings and diagnostic follow-up throughout the state. Median overall survival was 21.3 months with the combination therapy and it was 17.6 months with paclitaxel along with placebo.

"Simon Weldon, CEO at KGH, addressed the congregation together with many of our ladies who have experienced breast cancer".

In the new analysis, the researchers found that women who received the combination treatment survived for an average of 34.9 months - 6.9 months longer than those who received fulvestrant and a dummy pill.

In the phase 3 Impower130 study, a pairing of Roche's immuno-oncology contender plus Celgene chemo drug Abraxane helped people live a median 18.6 months, a statistically significant improvement over the 13.9 months solo chemo produced.

"Palbociclib is an innovative new drug that targets specific weaknesses in cancer cells, treating breast cancer in a smarter, kinder way than anything that had been available for these women before".

Another breast cancer specialist with no role in the study, Dr Michael Hassett at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, said he felt "cautious excitement" that immunotherapy may prove helpful for certain breast cancer patients. Conventional mammography captures the breast in a 2-dimentional (2-D), or "flat" picture in which abnormalities may be hidden by overlapping tissue.

"Without palbociclib, my breast cancer would probably progress sooner. This is the first time I am donating hair, and I did it because I wanted to help cancer patients who deserve to have wigs".

New guidelines for gene testing for those at risk for triple-negative breast cancer.

Cancer has always been considered a disease of the aged.
