Breast Cancer is a Leading Cause of Deaths Among Women

This year marks the 10th year that Payless ShoeSource has been supporting the battle against Breast Cancer with its "Embrace the Cause" initiative.

“We believe ABUS can help clinicians find significantly more cancers than mammography alone, especially in women with dense breasts, ” said Luke Delaney, general manager of Automated Breast Ultrasound at GE Healthcare.

The radiologist who read Johnsons films that day, Dr. Mia Jackson, medical director of imaging at the Shimberg Breast Center at St. Josephs Womens Hospital, confirms that a 2-D mammogram may not have picked up the cancer.

3D mammograms have been available for a few years, but the technology is celebrating its first anniversary at St. Barnabas. There are underperforming regions and the variation in breast cancer treatment and care across England is considered unacceptable. She is also, involved in community outreach and breast health education. A mammogram is a specialized breast X-ray used to detect signs of cancer in the breast that are too small to feel.

All Blenz locations across B.C. will accept a donation of any amount in exchange for a drip coffee of any size in an effort to raise awareness and funds during breast cancer awareness month.

Just previous year the SOMC Cancer Center opened its Breast Center addition on the lower level of the facility. It is a great opportunity to dedicate some time to reviewing breast health in general and breast cancer screening in particular.

This year's campaign comes just one week after authors of a new study from Harvard University announced that regularly eating processed meats can increase a woman's risk of breast cancer by 9%. Estrogen-blocking medications, such as selective estrogen receptor modulators and aromatase inhibitors, reduce the risk of breast cancer in women with a high risk of the disease.

"Having dense breasts — along with other risk factors — may make MRI necessary", said Niell.

American Cancer Society estimates that 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer.

Regular self-breast examination and regular mammograms are key to early detection. Before a breast MRI, you receive an injection of dye. I hope so, and I do hope you stop and read the pages that give you - both men and women - information that can save your life.

She says the Wisconsin Well Woman program can help women who need additional screening. “As breast ultrasound technology continues to advance, we are investing to continually improve image quality, workflow and patient comfort all of which contribute to early detection and improved outcomes.”.
