Supporting Metastatic Breast Cancer Patients During Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer awareness: From mammograms (2-D and 3-D) and MRIs to risk factors, here’s what you should

"The goal of my position is to navigate patients with breast cancers or even breast concerns through this emotional and medically challenging time in their life", Wilkes said.

October serves as a reminder of annual mammograms, but breast health is of importance all year long, hospital officials say. Last year, almost half a million dollars was raised collectively for cancer research organizations. "They will also be taught how to examine their own breasts", Norbal said.

BREAST cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths amongst women in Saint Lucia since 2006 according to the Bureau of Health Education in the country. "We are confident with larger data of Ghanaians, models could be developed with higher accuracy scores that could be used in the real world by doctors to diagnose breast cancer efficiently, easily and a higher accuracy", he added.

“We are committed to informing patients about breast density, and offering supplemental screening options, ” said Sophia Roumanis, M.D., section head of Breast Imaging and Intervention, Beaumont Breast Care Center, Dearborn. A mammogram is a specialized breast X-ray used to detect signs of cancer in the breast that are too small to feel. Tonight there is a special event to raise money for the American Cancer Society's fight against breast cancer at a Chico restaurant and bar. The NHS has estimated that breast cancer screening saves 1,300 lives a year in the UK. Approximately over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are still alive in the U.S today.

It is recommended that women get screening mammograms beginning at age 40 and continuing annually.

Florida Hospital this week announced the opening of a new breast cancer care clinic that aims to make treatment less stressful for patients. They ask a range of questions, such as age, race, ethnic background, age of menstruation onset, number of pregnancies, history of breast disease and first-degree female relatives with breast or ovarian cancer. Some other symptoms can include common redness or swollen lymph nodes.

These recommendations are for women of average risk. Those are the women who need to talk with their doctors to see if they would benefit from breast MRI in addition to screening mammography.
