    Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    in Health

    Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the breast, it is called breast cancer. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before she has any symptoms.. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. Most women who are 50 to 74 years old should have a screening mammogram every two years. If you are 40 to 49years old, or think you may have a higher risk of breast cancer, ask your doctor when to have a screening mammogram. Some things may increase your risk. If you have risk factors, you may be more likely to get breast cancer.
    Reproductive risk factors
    • Being younger when you had your first menstrual period.
    • Never giving birth, or being older at the birth of your first child.
    • Starting menopause at a later age.• Using hormone replacement therapy for a long time.
    Other risk factors
    • Getting older.
    • A personal history of breast cancer, dense breasts, or some other
    breast problems.
    • A family history of breast cancer (parent, sibling, or child).
    • Changes in your breast cancer-related genes (BRCA1 or BRCA2).
    • Getting radiation therapy to the breast or chest.
    • Being overweight, especially after menopause.

    Can’t afford a mammogram?
    If you have a low income or do not haveinsurance and are between the ages of
    40 and 64, you may qualify for a free or
    low-cost mammogram through CDC’s
    National Breast and Cervical Cancer
    Early Detection Program. To learn more,
    call (800) CDC-INFO.     Ref:  cdc.gov
