National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

National Breast Cancer Awareness is in October Month. Each year over 175,000 women (and 2000 men!) are diagnosed with breast cancer. In the United States, about 1 in 8 women (between 12 and 13%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In the U.S for women , breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer. Breast Cancer is the second-biggest killer of women after skin cancer. As we kick off a month of caring for and appreciating our boobies, the tussle over breast cancer guidelines and screening continues than they said: Yes, mammograms save lives. No, they don’t. Well, yes they do, if you’re in your 40 years old.
The major rule is that you should know and follow the American Cancer Society guidelines for the early detection of breast cancer are:
  1. For women ages 20 to 39 years: Should do Monthly breast self-exam, clinical exam by your physician every three years.
  2. For women ages 40 and up: Monthly breast self-exam, clinical exam by your physician every year, mammogram yearly.
  3. For women at high risk (close family history of breast cancer, etc.), they should discuss with their physician whether a yearly MRI may be indicated. When the FDA lifted the ban on silicone gel breast implants in November 2006, they recommended that anyone who undergoes silicone gel breast augmentation undergo an MRI three years after surgery, and every other year thereafter.
Hope you look forward to seeing a little from different parts of Breast Cancer. This time we are posting from Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
