Breast cancer survivor says 'early detection still key to survival'

WALK FOR CHARITY Marianne Roe and Mark Warnick with Molly and Marley at last year's event

"And the best thing they can do for themselves and their families is to make sure that they get their mammograms".

Up to 50 percent of middle aged women in the US have dense breasts.

Doctors suspected I had some kind of genetic mutation that increased my cancer risk so they recommended genetic testing. With every penny raised, fundraisers across the United Kingdom will be helping the charity achieve its aim that, if we all act now, by 2050 everyone who develops breast cancer will live, and live well.

Pink Minute coincides with the worldwide direct-selling company's Breast Cancer Promise global project, which has mobilized 6 million representatives around the world to create a communication network that will raise awareness on the symptoms, risks and treatments for the disease.

The unit was created on honor of Bonnie Wells Wilson, who battled breast cancer for nearly 20 years, and eventually fell victim to the disease in 1992. Also every woman has unique risk factors that are specific to her, but 2 to 5 in every 100 cancer diagnosis are linked to an inherited gene fault.

Hudson said she believes many types of cancers do not receive the attention they deserve because they are often overlooked or overshadowed by headline diseases.

The walk is a regional cancer awareness activity and fundraiser which takes place in all the territories of the Dutch and English speaking Caribbean where the bank operates. Digital breast tomosynthesis is a 3-D mammogram. "Cancer is not deadly, letting it go undetected is". The numbers are still 1 in 8 women will develop it over their lifetime. This decreases unnecessary biopsies and also anxiety.

Tanya is adamant about helping other young women to understand why it's so important to check our breasts and most importantly, KNOW HOW. One of the problems, however, is that although an MRI may find more cancer, it is also more likely to find more benign lesions leading to unnecessary biopsies.

Women aged 55 and older can switch to mammograms every two years, or can continue yearly screening.

The store is hosting a pink pop-up zoo on Saturday after customers were asked to bring in their unusual pets, featuring a tarantula, quail, axolotl fish and many more. In this week's Health Report, Julie Swisher took a look at some of the myths and misconceptions that come with getting screened.
