We have designed this website to increase Breast Cancer Awareness and empower Women to take control of their own health.
Breast Cancer is a subject that can be scary, but we are hoping to make you "aware" and provide you with the ability to gather information and obtain further knowledge on this subject.
It is important that you understand three necessary components of a comprehensive breast-screening program, which include:
- Breast self-examination
- Regular clinical breast exams
Our website has been designed to be your breast cancer link. We will guide you on how to find pertinent information, articles, books, organizations, and chat rooms, where you can expand your understanding, share and obtain information with others, and be able to take control of your life.
Early Detection is your Best Protection
Breast Cancer is the most common cancer among women, accounting for one out of three cancer diagnoses in the U.S. Unfortunately, every woman is at risk, as over 70% of women diagnosed have no family history of breast cancer. Currently, there is no way to prevent breast cancer. Therefore, finding breast cancer early is key. Early detection improves the chances that breast cancer can be located, diagnosed and treated successfully. Survival rates are as high as 97% when found early. Therefore the importance of early detection through breast self-examination, regular clinical breast exams and periodic mammograms cannot be overemphasized.
The FDA has approved the Aware breast self-examination (BSE) kit. This can help make BSE easier to do and is something you can do for yourself. Click for more information.
Many Breast Problems are found by women themselves
Studies have shown that women themselves have found most breast problems. This speaks to the power that each woman can play in her own health. However, a Breast Self-Examination (BSE) is not a replacement for regular medical visits and periodic mammography. All three steps are important to finding breast cancer early.
