Breast cancer: Why you should focus on prevention

Runners in the 12th annual Girlfriends Run for a Cure race through Vancouver starting and finishing

This was just one part of Sunday's Think Pink game, which celebrates a campaign started by Tanya Snyder to raise awareness for breast cancer research and to honor individuals who have battled the disease.

Aiello also commended Olean firefighters for wearing pink in October in recognition of those who have fought the disease.

In women with a significant family history of breast cancer or special circumstances, mammography can also be followed by ultrasound in both screening and symptomatic examinations and breast MRI.

When I see people who have been cancer-free for 35 years, and I just finished in September, it brings tears to my eyes. Fellows will complete rotations in breast surgery, pathology, breast imaging, medical oncology, radiation oncology, plastic and reconstructive surgery, cancer screening and community outreach, genetics, integrative oncology, survivorship, post-treatment rehabilitation, and research.

"I realized there's no victory for me at the end", she said. She says she was shocked to discover that, at 43, she was one of the oldest patients having treatment for breast cancer at that particular centre.

The plate resulted from legislative action during the 123rd Legislature by then-Representative Meredith Strang Burgess from Cumberland, who is a breast cancer survivor as well.

A mammogram is the most effective tool for detecting breast cancer in its earliest stages. At first, she thought her cancer was always going to be temporary.

Ger goes to schools with Adrienne McCleery, an outreach nurse with BCI, who explains about breast cancer and teaches the girls how to self-check.

Slingerland said although younger women are not diagnosed as often, the concern is they're often diagnosed later, leading to more aggressive cancer.

"It can be hard to rule out suspicious swollenness because when a woman is ovulating or in their periods their hormones rise and if you do the test in this period it can be hard to know whether the changes in the breasts are due to menses or not".

Rethink your next drink There is a strong link between alcohol consumption and breast cancer.
