Breast Cancer is one of the leading types of Cancer for women in the U.S. Death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer.
Statistics show that 1 in 8 Women will develop invasive Breast Cancer over their lifetime. October has been designated as “National Breast Cancer Awareness Month” in the U.S. to help encourage both Women, AND Men to be regularly tested for the disease. While the number of American Men who will develop Breast Cancer (1 in 1,000) is lower – they are also at risk.
Please consult with your Doctor about regular check-ups and tests for all types of Cancer, including Breast Cancer. Your Doctor will be able to identify your current health diagnosis, along with genetic risk factors to provide the best schedule of appointments and testing for you.
