In partnership with Ascension St. Vincent, here is information that you might find useful.

Breast cancer: Surprising facts for women to know

About 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer at some point during their lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.

In recognition of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, doctors at Ascension St. Vincent have shared some of the top things you need to know about breast cancer.

SURPRISING FACTS ABOUT BREAST CANCER:
  • The risk for breast cancer increases with age, as most breast cancers are diagnosed after age 50.
  • If you have a family history of breast cancer, it raises your chances for developing it. However, about 85 percent of women diagnosed have no family history.
  • Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States.
  • Early detection thru self-exams and mammogram screening can save your life.
HOW IMPORTANT ARE SELF-BREAST EXAMS?
  • The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends a yearly clinical breast exam by your provider.
  • Recommendations vary on the importance of monthly self-breast exams, but flag your health care provider if you feel there is any change in your breasts.
  • No matter your risk, early detection through self-exams and mammogram screenings is key to catching cancer when treatment has the best chance of being effective.
WHAT CAN WOMEN DO TO BE PROACTIVE IN CONTROLLING RISK FACTORS?

You can’t control your genetics or avoid getting older. But there are ways to be proactive about controlling your risks factors:

  • Eat a healthy diet. Limit highly processed foods and opt for lean meats, whole grains, and fruits and vegetables.
  • Exercise regularly, don’t smoke and limit alcohol consumption.
  • See your doctor for annual well-checks.
