Breast Cancer Screening For Early Detection

Breast Cancer Screening For Early Detection

LITITZ BOROUGH, Lancaster County - One local police department is not only wearing pink for breast cancer awareness, but raising money in doing so. Breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women after skin cancer. According to Kim Deti, Public Information Officer for the Wyoming Department of Health, early detection is incredibly significant.

Commenting, Aberdeenshire East MSP Gillian Martin said: "Every year, Breast Cancer Now make sure to raise awareness across the North-East about this disease". "Patients diagnosed with cancer are overwhelmed and they need help to navigate the complex medical system".

"Everyone seems to know someone that has been affected by breast cancer", she added. "2018 marks the 10th anniversary of Vitas House and we are proud to be able to contribute to the exemplary work that they continue to do", said Jerus Mohammed, Country Manager, Payless ShoeSource.

"Charity Breast Cancer Now recently called for greater investment into breast cancer care following the results of its analysis which suggested that the postcode lottery in NHS services could be costing lives".

"Breast cancer is a concern for everyone".

Mammograms catch up to 87 percent of breast cancers, even before symptoms appear. I think the scariest part of any time you have abnormal imaging is the not knowing if it's cancer or not. "What we want to do is identify those women at high risk (for breast cancer) so they can benefit from earlier screening and supplemental screening with MRI".

If diagnosed with breast cancer, treatment depends on the state of the cancer.

She affirmed that studies have found that the risk of breast cancer increases with age and that most of the breast cancer cases are diagnosed beyond the age of 50. Talk to your health care provider if you have questions about breast cancer and discuss your personalized risk factors and options. Blenz has donated more than $100,000 over the past five years.

3-D mammography takes pictures in thin slices, giving doctors a look at breast tissue one layer at a time, often making abnormalities stand out more than with 2-D mammography.
