The median age of a breast cancer diagnosis in USA women is 62, according to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the organizer behind Saturday's Komen Miami/Fort Lauderdale More Than Pink Walk at Bayfront Park in downtown Miami.

It was echoed by the experts at an awareness walk and seminar on "Breast Cancer" arranged by Institute of Home Science, University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF) in collaboration with Punjab Higher Education Commission, Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital and Ribbon Youth Awareness Program. With breast cancer, however, that is not the case.

"Instead, treatment aims to control the cancer, relieve any symptoms, and maintain health, wellbeing and a good quality of life for as long as possible".

Have the "breast cancer gene." . Women at increased risk of breast cancer, for example with a strong family history, may be eligible for breast screening before turning 50.

She underwent a double mastectomy in August 2016 and then went through eight rounds of chemotherapy.

"The short-term anxiety that could come from an inconclusive test result simply doesn't outweigh the many lives saved each year by mammography screening". But, beginning in 2017 the campaign grew to include all types of cancers that have the option for an early detection screening, giving teams around the league the opportunity to support different types of cancer research.

Dr. Gabriel reference the unfortunate downside to not performing regular breast examinations. Many lumps may turn out to be harmless, but it is essential that all of them are checked. The more dense your breasts, the higher your risk.

But now it was stage IV metastatic breast cancer that spread into her liver which was failing and causing her stomach blow up with fluids as if she were pregnant.

Priestley says although individuals vary, many people with secondary breast cancer want to talk about their diagnosis, and acknowledging that it is a life-limiting illness is a big part of this.

Her doctor was in disbelief, saying he couldn't believe that someone who ran marathons and was relatively young - she was diagnosed when she was 45 - could have breast cancer. Maintain a healthy weight. "Based on this, a breast ultrasound can be done, and when needed, a breast MRI is conducted", she said.

White women are slightly more likely to develop breast cancer than African American, Hispanic and Asian women.

If you are overweight or obese it can increase the risk of breast cancer.

"This just brings so much pride especially when you consider the median salary of many of our Bronx survivors", she said, "These are people who have passion and who care".

The ACS hoped to hit their fundraising goal of $40,000 by the time the day was over, a mark they expect to hit considering they started the day at $30,000.
