Technology that is helping doctors is a 3-D mammogram that allows doctors to detect breast cancer earlier since the X-ray is produced with high definition. Thousands of men are diagnosed with the disease in the United States every year.

She started with one day a week and now volunteers two days a week, working primarily with women who have metastatic breast cancer. Consequently, the Society further indicates that there are more than 3 million survivors today in the US alone.

"Breast cancer is one of the most common causes of death for women across the US, especially in the Bay Area, which has one of the highest rates in the country", Morgan said.

The H&M x Rethink capsule collection consists of five limited-edition statement tees created to support breast health and the facts surrounding breast cancer. "The prerequisite is detection".

Since 2010, each October Cenla residents have laced up their running shoes, donned their finest pink attire and taken to the streets racing to benefit breast cancer research. True to its name, this cancer begins primarily in the glands or ducts used in the production of milk.

Additional factors, according to Ray, that can also increase breast cancer risk, includes being overweight, lack of exercise, drinking alcohol, smoking, menstruating before age 12, exposure to chemicals that cause cancer, taking oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy and refraining from breastfeeding.

"Breast cancer is increasing at an alarming rate in India".

In more advanced stages, there might be lumps or nodules detectable through self-examination; the experience of pain, swelling, or redness of the breast tissue; unusual changes to nipples, and more. "Our study indicates that moderate, relatively short-term weight reduction was associated with a statistically significant reduction in breast cancer risk for postmenopausal women", said Dr. Chlebowski. Poverty, under-education, etc. only paves way for further complications in the various rising cases of breast cancer.

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women and the second leading cause of cancer death among women. And ultimately, the disease will kill them.

Dr Sandeep also shared a few ways that can help us prevent breast cancer.

Certainly, in addition to annual mammograms and medical check-ups, healthy self-care is equally as important for women.

"Awareness for breast cancer is huge". A mammogram - the screening test for breast cancer - can help find the disease early, when it's easier to treat. Last year, Hungry Howie's Love, Hope & Pizza promotion crossed the $2 million mark in donations. "This is a step towards raising awareness of the whole community, so they can play an active role in encouraging people to get screened", said Dr Shaikha Abu Shaikha, Cancer Program Manager, PHCC.
