Your health care professional may recommend that you begin screening earlier, get screened more frequently or get magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with your mammogram if you have a family history of the disease.
That's advice she has for other people going through breast cancer treatment.
Addie Mitchell, clinical nurse specialist at BCC, told Digital Health News that she hoped the digital tool would help give women more confidence to check for breast cancer.
"In this example, the man does not live even a second longer", Lisa Schwartz, MD, a professor of medicine and co-director of the Center for Medicine and Media at The Dartmouth Institute, said in a statement.
If liquid oozes out of your nipple without putting any pressure on it, and you're not breastfeeding, it could be a sign of breast cancer.
You probably don't need a reminder that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month; after all, pink ribbons are as abundant as hayrides this month. Those seated in the picture are all breast cancer survivors.
The doctor, however, called on the government to implement a policy to ban the consumption of alcohol and tobacco, to reduce deaths arising from breast cancer.
Education and self-awareness are said to be the driving forces behind the increased number of women and men who showed up for the free breast cancer screening offered at the Mount St. John's Medical Centre. Breast cancer is something which women feel shy in speaking about, but the truth is that if they do not speak about it, it could become very risky.
She added: "We are all working together to put Aberdeen on the map as a centre of excellence in cancer research".
Guilty offenders were sentenced to donate toward breast cancer awareness.
The extreme example of this type of bias is over diagnosis of cancer, where a slow-growing cancer is found by screening that never would have caused any harm or require treatment during the patient's lifetime. For every life we loose to breast cancer, we loose a mother, a daughter, a friend or a relative. "Funds raised from this coin will help the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and bring us one step closer to eradicating breast cancer". "It gives me vast joy in meeting the women who never gave up". Again, I believe there really is no other way to get to the other side of cancer.
There is a reason to cheer as well - almost 92% of women who had been diagnosed with breast cancer were alive since their last visit to a professional caregiver. While lifestyle choices may directly or indirectly lead to the development of cancerous cells - a study of the profile of breast cancer patients will help health care professionals better identify those likely to fall amidst "high risk" groups and prescribe a preventive screening and check-up more aggressively.
