Steps to find breast cancer early -- or keep it from happening

An Iranian charity organization is planning on setting up booths to raise awareness about breast cancer concurrent with Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign aimed to offer information and support to those affected by breast cancer. A walkathon was held in Chennai on Saturday.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Forestville Lady Hornets volleyball team will once again host its annual "Spike Out Cancer" volleyball experience.

MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper recently announced that is received a three-year approval to establish a new Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship Program by the Society of Surgical Oncology, one of fewer than 50 programs in the nation.

The largest borough event honoring breast cancer survivors and raising money to find a cure is coming up. However, there are certain factors that would put women in a higher risk category.

Breast cancer is still the most common cancer in the United Kingdom according to the UK's largest breast cancer charity and is the foremost cause of death in women under the age of 50. "There are other people who are suffering but just don't know where to get help, where to get started". In fact, almost 80 percent of young women diagnosed with breast cancer found their breast abnormality themselves, according to a 2009 Journal of Oncology study about breast cancer in younger women.

Over the past five years, the organization has helped almost 300 women. most in their 20's, 30's and early 40's.

Oh, here's a video too so you can see how to do self-exams properly. "Do this in a circular motion down to the lower part of the breast and make sure you cover the whole breast", she says.

Most of the funding goes to awareness and early detection, she said. "That was the moment I thought, "Thank god, I've only got breast cancer", whereas some weeks before, breast cancer was the biggest fear", she says.

The charity says that up to 15% of individuals may have a family history of breast cancer which is the main reason why they have developed the disease.

"I felt strongly about giving back, so I used to collect wigs for women going through cancer who had lost their hair", she said. But while being treated for that, an MRI revealed a tumor on his lung, which required surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.

Breast cancer is not one and the same for all women.

In September 2015, Ger had a mastectomy and lymph nodes removed at the Hermitage Clinic. According to the American Cancer Society, the five-year survival rate is 99 percent when found early and confined to a localized area. That's when breast surgeon Professor Arnold Hill confirmed that the lump was indeed a tumour.
