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

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

Ms Chattoe says "eight or nine" volunteers will help her blow up 1000 balloons on Friday, including longstanding allies Sandy Bradshaw and Laura Hounam.

"It's a bit scary, but I promise you it's scarier NOT to do it", Stacey tells wāhine in a video produced for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer for women, and third most common cancer overall with 3300 women and 25 men diagnosed in New Zealand every year. For those who have been diagnosed with cancer, she can help determine if there is a genetic reason behind the disease.

It is also recommended that women regularly self-examine their breasts. Breasts are made up of fat, breast tissue and connective tissue. It's estimated around 40 per cent of women over age 40 have dense breasts.

Dr Nsiah-Asare said other risk factors that affect breast cancer include old age and being age 55 or older; genetic and familial tendencies, having dense breast tissue, and going through menopause later in life or starting menstruation at a younger age could not be controlled.

Canadian auto parts makers should hug Trump for USMCA: Wildeboer
Some American dairy groups say the policy has undercut US producers hoping to export to Canada and other countries. The new agreement requires that 75 percent of the parts for automobiles be made in either of the three countries.

Experts from Harvard University have proved that the eating of sausages significantly increases the risk of developing breast cancer.

There's the arrival of cooler weather (sans Florida), pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween, but there's one thing that means just a bit more: breast-cancer awareness.

When I got my own genetic test results, I was shocked. "I've got to check my breast and if I feel a lump, even if I've had a mammogram two months ago, I've got to get this checked out'". Finding a bra without side seams is also helpful for women who've had a lymph node dissection, a surgical procedure in which the lymph nodes are removed, since there's often swelling and sensitivity at the surgery site. Breast density is important, because small breast cancers may be hidden in dense breast tissue and not easily viewed by traditional mammograms. There is also a lot of misinformation out there when it comes to screening.

"Through these clinical trials, we have an opportunity to connect patients who have advanced and aggressive forms of breast cancer with world-class doctors and treatment options", Vahdat in a statement. No referral is required.

Over the last decade, much has been done across the country to educate women about dense breasts and ensure they receive the proper screenings. They aim to grow and raise a significant part of their food by maintaining a vegetable garden, keeping a flock of backyard chickens and foraging.
