The new study tested one from Roche called Tecentriq plus chemo versus chemo alone in 902 women with advanced triple-negative breast cancer.

Beyond the pink ribbon, what does breast cancer awareness look like? To help women take control of their health and continue the positive trend in survival rates, DHEC offers free breast cancer and cervical cancer screenings to qualified women through its Best Chance Network (BCN) program. Fibrous connective tissues also get affected or the fatty tissues of the breasts can also develop cancer. "But about 4 or 5 years ago, sequencing technology changed dramatically, so now we're able to do these gene panels and check many genes at a time".

"Regular breast cancer screening can catch a cancer early, when it is most treatable", said Dr. Virginie Daguise, MSPH, Director of DHEC's Bureau of Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention. Trends have shown that today's young people are on track to be the most overweight generation-and obesity has been proven to contribute to higher cancer rates.

Adding, the objective of screening is to be able to catch and detect the breast cancer early if it is to occur, so that it can be treated effectively and be able to be cured.

"We're really hopeful that we can identify a group of women who can get a much bigger and longer response", she said.

"Instead of depending on mammography, we made a decision to train health care workers, comprising mostly women, to clinically examine the breasts of women".

Kim Robertson, from Island Park, is fighting the disease and was at the event supported by more than 100 friends and relatives.

The CBE programme of TS and AP eventually became a part of the national guidelines for breast cancer screening programme. To counter this, we need a solution that will be tailor made for Indian population. Counselling should involve discussion about the diagnosis, adequate psychological and emotional support and various treatment options by the specialists in a sensitive and supportive environment. To be frank, most people do have only a vague idea about breast cancer and the intensity of the malady. The breast is positioned and compressed in the same way as a conventional mammogram.

Being overweight or obese after menopause: Older women who are overweight or obese have a higher risk of getting breast cancer than those at a normal weight. The mere presence of risk factors is not synonymous with the occurrence of breast cancer nor can all risk factors for breast cancer be mitigated or modified.
