According to the CDC, "breast cancer mortality is decreasing for both black and white women, especially among younger women." Even though death rates are going down, we need to do more to level the field. Learn more about breast cancer from Physician Assistant, Lauren Zanda.
Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women, after skin cancer. Finding breast cancer early is critical because when found early, it is easier to treat!
What symptoms should you look for??
Keep in mind that these symptoms can happen with other conditions that are not cancer! If any symptoms arise, please contact our office and we will be happy to evaluate you.
In women over 40 years old, the best way to screen for breast cancer involves a mammogram. This is an X-ray picture of your breast. Some of the best things you can do to reduce your chances of breast cancer is keeping a healthy weight, engage in regular physical activity and limit alcohol intake.
