Breast cancer awareness: Share your survival story

Breast cancer awareness: Share your survival story”

"I got a mammogram, and then it was very clear that I had breast cancer".

Beyonce and her sister Solange Knowles tested negative for the mutated BRCA2 gene according to their father Matthew Knowles. For many people who have received a breast cancer diagnosis, as well as their families, the five-year breast cancer survival rate of 88% has helped transform their diagnosis from one of fear to one of hope.

Dr. Albert Wendt is both a survivor and a specialist at St. Joseph's University of Arizona Cancer Center who routinely reminds his male patients why breast cancer is more fatal.

"Constant mammograms, constant prostate exams, constant MRIs for the rest of my life.", he said. They found this early and they took out three lymph nodes. "At the end of the day, anyone with breast tissue can get breast cancer, even men".

He added during his interview with the gossip website: "I'm looking about January time to have the other breast removed just being proactive and reducing the risk".

"We are still learning about what causes mutations in DNA that lead to breast cancer", Smith said.

The tendency of men developing breast cancer is quite low, the reason is that women begin developing breast tissue sooner and more than men do. When it comes to the symptoms of breast cancer, women don't exhibit symptoms similar to that of men. Lumps can appear in your breast, armpit or around your collarbone.

The Cancer Services Program of the Finger Lakes Region (CSP-FLR), serving Monroe, Livingston, Wayne, Ontario, Yates and Seneca Counties, is hosting breast cancer screening events in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Knowles urges men to get themselves screened before it is too late. To make sure you pick up any changes in your breasts you need to be aware of what is normal for you.
