Breast cancer awareness starts with your own breast health

Breast cancer: Why you should focus on prevention

"I'm a breast cancer survivor baby, and I'm raising money for breast cancer awareness", Johnson said.

AB Walker, based on London Road, will be hosting the event in aid of Breast Cancer Care, the only UK-wide specialist breast cancer support charity.

"We're here to honor breast cancer survivors, celebrate those people who have won their battles and all that good stuff", said Alli Hermiller, Community Development Manager for the ACS.

"Several relatively new breast imaging technologies have brought a new dimension to the fight against breast cancer", explains Dr Smilg.

Around 55,000 women and 350 men are diagnosed with breast cancer annually in the United Kingdom according to statistics provided by Breast Cancer Now.

Know the symptoms- They are different and some people have no symptoms at all. Almost 40, 000 women succumb to this disease.

The following day, Ger, her husband Denis, and their boys, Sean, Darragh and Brian, who are now 15, 13 and 11 respectively, jetted off to Altomincio, near Lake Garda.

The exact reasons for the rising incidence are unknown, but obesity, better diagnostics and women delaying childbirth are believed to be factors.

"Following my diagnosis, in the space of a 20-minute consultation, I felt I lost my identity and my future with those I love", Ms Myatt said. There, she was told she was too young for cancer.

Recognized as one of the leading breast cancer organizations in the world, NBCF's mission is to help women by providing help and inspiring hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services.

"To my knowledge, there are no documented incidents of a mammogram exposure resulting in a breast cancer in anybody", he said. "I have that bus on my a (asterisk)(asterisk) every day".

Breast cancer risk is higher among women whose close blood relatives have this disease. "Under-standing if you or your family has an inherited genetic risk can help you take action to reduce your risk and improve your cancer screening strategies, and cancer genetics has progressed far beyond just breast cancer risk".

"When you diagnose the cancer early, that means the treatment is limited and not very invasive", she said. "Sometimes they say, 'This looks suspicious; you need to get a diagnostic mammogram, ' which is a more focused and intense mammogram to try to look at specific areas a little more closely".

"There are BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, these are hereditary and once you have these in your system you are definitely going to have that cancer".
