Today, there are over two and half million breast cancer survivors. Over the past twenty years, great improvements have been made in the treatment of breast cancer. As a result, the number of breast cancer survivors continues to rise.
Unfortunately, the chance of getting breast cancer goes up as a woman gets older. Women 65 years or older comprise half of the new breast cancer patients annually.
For all women, the American Cancer Society’s recommended guidelines for early detection in all women without symptoms include:
- Mammogram: Women age 40 and older should have a screening mammogram every year and should continue to do so for as long as they are in good health.
- Clinical breast exam: After age 40, women should have a breast exam by a health expert every year.
- Breast self-exam (BSE): BSE is an option for women starting in their 20s. Women should report any changes in how their breasts look or feel to their health professional right away.
Again, the event is free and open to the public.
