Breast Cancer Screening For Early Detection

The restaurant is proud to be joining the fight against breast cancer by committing to aid The Susan G. Komen® Foundation throughout the month of October.

She says women over age 40 should get mammograms.

3D mammograms have been available for a few years, but the technology is celebrating its first anniversary at St. Barnabas. Worldwide, the statistics are similar - in 2018 alone, there were over 2 million new cases of breast cancer. There are underperforming regions and the variation in breast cancer treatment and care across England is considered unacceptable. Apparently breast cells only really "mature" when they produce milk for breast feeding and if they don't go through that they remain like immature teenagers. Usually, breast cancer has no symptoms, but sometimes there might be discomfort, an inverted nipple, lumps or even a nipple discharge. 'Why me?' 'Why cancer?' 'Why my breast?' I think it's natural to wonder why but it's also potentially problematic.

"We need to be funding more programs". Both cancer and dense tissue appear white on a mammogram, so looking for tumors in women with dense breasts can be like looking for a snowball in a snowstorm. Proceeds from shirt sales are donated to Pink Pursuit a non-for-profit organization in Columbia that raises money to provide mammogram services to Missouri patients whether insured, under insured or uninsured. Breast cancer survival rates have significantly improved due to advances in treatment.

One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer. About 90% of patients survive for many years after diagnosis when breast cancer is detected at the early stages.

Unfortunately, MRI's are too expensive for routine screening so the study authors suggest talking to your doctor if you are a high-risk candidate.

However, what is alarming is that about 85 percent of breast cancers occur in women with no family history of breast cancer. Breast examination is to determine any abnormality in the lymph nodes.

These recommendations are for women of average risk.

"We should be evaluating every woman for breast cancer risk", said Dr. Robert Gabordi, a breast surgical oncologist and genetic specialist at St. Josephs Womens Hospital.
