Mammograms save lives so why such confusing advice

It has become necessary to inform all about breast cancer as it is the second most common type of cancer found in women. Currently, there is no cure for the disease.

The blood or saliva test, developed by a team in Manchester, looks at 18 genetic variations that are known to affect the chances of an individual developing breast cancer.

Throughout their Week of Hope, Health and Healing, Praise is the Cure hosted other awareness events, including a Praise Sunday, in which different churches throughout the city educate women on breast cancer; and a children's festival at the Wissahickon Boys and Girls Club.

New technology detects early stages.

Average women should begin screening at age 45.

Colette, 48, who for the University of Oxford, said: "When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, I felt completely lost and helpless, my gorgeous little boy was only five years old and it was an agonising time".

Prevent Breast Cancer's Predicting Risk of Cancer At Screening (PROCAS) SNP study of 10,000 women, 455 of which went on to develop breast cancer, has confirmed the accuracy of the predictions. "This is a massive game-changer for breast cancer", he said.

"Metastatic breast cancer is a devastating disease".

Guidelines are ever-changing, and now we follow the guidelines from the American Cancer Society and the American Society of Breast Surgeons. (ALSO READ 7 things young women must know about breast cancer). Interested women should call in to find out if they're a candidate for this study.

The hospital will have information available about mammograms and breast health.

A breast surgeon at the Edith Sanford Breast Center says that early detection can start at home. This means the disparities might be more pronounced in the general population than in the study group, the authors note.
