Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer amongst women. Fortunately, the incidence rate has decreased within the last few years due to greater exposure and public awareness campaigns aimed at early prevention and educating the medically underserved population.
Like other forms of cancer, breast cancer is caused by the irregular multiplication of abnormal cells in the breast area. In 2017, an estimated 250+ thousand new causes of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed according to U.S. Breast Cancer Statistics. Experts agree that age is one of the greatest risk factors (4 out of five cases are diagnosed after the age of 50). Therefore “we must remain vigilant and support early detection efforts seeing that breast cancer identified in its early stages can greatly increase the chances of successful treatments and cures”.
We personally invite you to take an active role by spreading the word about the need for continuous research and the importance of preventive measures such as the self-exam and scheduled routine mammograms. Join this campaign Today!
