October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Nashville, TN – October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the Department of Health is challenging all Tennessee women over the age of 40 to get a clinical breast exam and mammogram. These screening tests are powerful weapons in the fight against breast cancer. The survival rate is greater than 95 percent for women whose breast cancer is found at an early stage.
“Mammograms and clinical breast exams are still the best method for finding cancer early and offering protection against the disease, leading women to get treatment before the cancer is in advanced stages,” said Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH, FACOEM. “We urge Tennessee women to get screened for breast cancer and talk to their health providers about ways to reduce their risk for this disease.” «Read the rest of this article»
