Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know that there are over 100 types of cancer?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cancer is the second leading cause of death in this country. Over the next few months, we will cover several types of cancer, starting with breast cancer in this article.

Breast cancer is most prevalent in women.

The best way to detect it early is to have a mammogram. A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast, and it is a screening that is recommended every two years for women between 50 and 74 years old. Women younger than 50 years old should talk to their doctor to determine if this screening is needed.

What are some risk factors?

According to the CDC, risk factors for breast cancer fall into two categories – those you can change and those you cannot change.
The following table lists them.

Please talk to your healthcare provider about determining your risk for breast cancer as well as ways you can reduce your risk for breast cancer. Get started today, call us at 602-685-6000 to schedule an appointment with a caring Terros Health medical provider!
