The American College of Radiology recommends women age 40 and older complete a yearly screening mammogram and, at the Scotland Cancer Center, the imaging center offers new state-of-the-art technology, 3-D mammography, which is the first in the region.

During the month of October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many women question if they should be getting annual mammograms.

Walk-ins will be accommodated as able.

The Institute of Cancer Research, London, strongly welcomes the news that talazoparib (trade name Talzenna) has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients with advanced breast cancer.

This year's "Human Pink Ribbon" will be formed at ConnextCare Pulaski 61 Delano St., beginning at 10 a.m. Men even tend to have higher mortality rates than women because they don't know they're at risk and get help too late.

MTV’s The Real World Is Being Rebooted On Facebook Watch
Facebook Watch is launching three seasons of the show, one in the US , one in Mexico and one in Thailand. The show focuses on a group of young adults as they temporarily live together in a new city.

The study found that while women diagnosed with HR-positive breast cancer have lower risk of progression to metastatic disease soon after the diagnosis, their risk persists for several years.

"Metastatic breast cancer can be a devastating diagnosis with high rates of relapse and death, and there are now no effective therapies", he says. Higher levels of knowledge and awareness of the importance of early detection in addition to the availability of health care coverage and free tests provided by the Ministry of Public Health during certain months of the year (October till January) mark better results in terms of screening measures taken. Families with the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genetic mutation have increased risk for developing male breast cancer.

"Awareness should be created among masses to get most breast cancers detectable at early stages, as most women with breast cancer arrive after metastasis (when the tumor has spread to other body parts)". "St. Patrick's Day will remind me to get my mammogram", said Greene, who showed the audience the hat her mother had worn during breast cancer treatment. While most breast cancer affects women after age 40, young women are still at risk.

"According to the U.S. County Profile, the female breast cancer rate is higher in Jefferson County than in the state of OH", she said.

Meanwhile, a public awareness seminar on "Breast Cancer, their prevention and early detection in Females" was held on Wednesday at auditorium of CMC Larkana.

Join the American Cancer Society as they "Paint Wailea Pink" in solidarity to make a difference in the fight against Breast Cancer! NARMC's Imaging Services Department provides flexible times for women to fit their mammograms into their busy schedules. But, a woman who has inherited a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation is about five times more likely to develop the disease than a woman who does not have the mutation.
