This October, Learn More about this Potential Killer

Pink Balloons for Breast Cancer Awareness | Veteran Car DonationsBreast cancer is among the top causes of cancer deaths in women. However, advancements in medical technology and a better understanding of the disease have led to more recoveries as well as increased survival rates.

The disease affects both males and females, but the likelihood of a man developing breast cancer is extremely rare. As of 2020, it’s estimated that at least one out of eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer at some point in her life.

What causes breast cancer remains a mystery, but experts agree that both environmental and genetic factors are major factors.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a worldwide campaign that’s observed annually in October. During this month, concerned organizations help highlight the importance of breast cancer awareness, diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing research. They underscore that early detection of breast cancer through regular screening is the key to improving one’s chances of surviving the disease.

 

The 3 Findings on Breast Cancer that You Probably Didn’t Know

A lot of misconceptions and myths surround breast cancer, which is why increased awareness about the disease is extremely important.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month helps bring breast cancer into the spotlight, creating opportunities for dispelling the common myths about the disease.

Take a look at these three findings on breast cancer that you probably didn’t know:

  1. Breast cancer isn’t purely genetic.

Numerous people diagnosed with the disease have no known family history of cancer. It’s estimated that only 5 to 10% of all breast cancer cases have a hereditary basis.

  1. Mammography isn’t 100% foolproof.

Although mammography is a highly suggested screening tool, studies show that it can potentially miss 20% of breast cancer diagnoses. It’s not uncommon to know of patients who received negative mammogram results only to be diagnosed with breast cancer later on.

  1. Not all breast cancer patients develop lumps.

Most guides on self-examination for breast cancer rely on physical clues such as lumps. Unfortunately, some breast cancer types don’t cause lumps during their early stages. By the time the lump does appear, the cancer cells have already moved beyond the breast area. Never skip regular screening with your doctor or a mammography session just because your self-examination feels clear.
