Breast cancer: Why you should focus on prevention

Kennesaw State's Health Promotion and Wellness Center held an event Thursday, Oct. 11, to raise awareness about breast cancer and how to reduce risks.

All of the 80 staff across the six branches will wear their pink T-shirts as many times as possible during the month, with the change of colour being compulsory on Tuesdays and Fridays.

After the local mum discovered she was a carrier of the BRCA mutant gene, which greatly increases the chance of getting breast cancer, she took the courageous and daunting decision to have a double mastectomy. It's a typical one African-American women in Chicago face, particularly for those who are low-income or uninsured, Murphy said. "Emotional support is crucial, which is why family, friends, and support groups such as those offered by BCF make a huge difference in the fight against breast cancer, as well as early detection through regular breast checks".

After participating in the first Making Strides against Breast Cancer Walk in Queens in October 2016, Falconer said the group was inspired to raise funds.

Every woman is different, and there are varying levels of breast cancer risk for each. During October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, 5,000 people will be told they have the disease.

"I'm all for women having information, but there's not evidence to support what to do", says Karla Kerlikowske, a primary-care physician and a professor of medicine, epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of California at San Francisco.

"If you have a family history of breast cancer, you should begin screening five to 10 years earlier than the age that your first-degree relative developed breast cancer", says Dr. Brem.

"However we understand that once you are able to do this in a normal frequency as determined by your healthcare provider there are no harmful effects at all". In March 2013, she was diagnosed with triple positive breast cancer.

But then she learned her cancer metastasized to her lungs in 2013.

Most of the funding goes to awareness and early detection, she said.

"But I'm shy!" Hey, you're going to a professional and exams only take a couple of minutes of prodding on your breasts. Men carry a higher mortality than women do, primarily because awareness among men is less and they are less likely to assume a lump is breast cancer which can cause a delay in seeking treatment.

'I think I know more about' North Atlantic Treaty Organisation than Mattis does
A preview clip airing Sunday morning on "Face the Nation" featured Trump leaving open the idea that Mattis might be leaving soon. When pressed about consistent rumors that Mattis is close to submitting his resignation, Trump responded: "Well, I don't know".

Members of Breast Love and AEGIES Health Care interacted with some of the participants to educate them on breast cancer preventive measures.

Those are the only people who get it, she said.

"There's not always that power or confidence for younger women though. In the Ashkenazi Jewish population, it is one in 40", she says. Breast cancer is the abnormal growth of breast cells.
