- October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and each year health professionals in the United States rally to bring awareness to an global health issue that affects both women and men.

The exact causes of breast cancer are not fully understood and it's impossible to know if it can be prevented. When she saw an item with a pink ribbon logo at the grocery store, she bought it. The spread of cancer is called metastasis. "I'm thankful for everyone I've met on this journey". "I can "fight like a girl" all I want. but I'll never stop treatment".

A year ago the company saw significant bookings for the month of October.

He also says there are people who have genetic predisposition where cancers run in the family. And ultimately, the disease will kill them.

For many, including Cydnee Greathouse, who are either fighting breast cancer or have survived it, the event has become an important part in the recovery process.

CEO of Makeup Ghana, Rebeca Donkor, who participated in the one and a half hour walk praised the organizers for organizing a programme that keeps n the know about breast cancer.

The report found that around 72 percent of the NHS trust and health board do not provide dedicated specialist nurses for people who are living with incurable breast cancer. A year later, another mammogram came back benign.

So, we're talking about early detection for breast cancer in tonight's Ask the Doctor, with radiologist, Dr. Kinsey Pillsbury.

Beth Fairchild, president of nonprofit METAvivor Research and Support, has stage IV breast cancer.

She says though the event is not as popular as others, it still helps gets the message across in an effort to save lives.

But early detection is key, so if you find a lump, visit a GP immediately for an examination just to be sure.

"I've heard someone say: 'Why close the gate when the horse is out of the barn?'" she said.

Breast Cancer Foundation has assisted the petition organisers by funding buses to take them to Wellington from Palmerston North and Hawke's Bay.

"If you have a family history of breast cancer, you should begin screening five to 10 years earlier than the age that your first-degree relative developed breast cancer", says Dr. Brem.

A handful of women interviewed by The News Journal only knew of a couple of other DE women who have metastatic breast cancer.

"Those guidelines just don't apply to young African-American women", said Dana Wint, a spokeswoman with the Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force.

A 3-D mammogram exam is nearly identical to the traditional mammogram, and women will notice little difference in the procedure if they've had mammograms in the past. After getting a mammogram, her doctors said it was nothing. "To me, it felt very different". When there are changes in the breast tissue, the machine is trained to recognize the changes and bring them to the radiologist's attention. Breastfeeding can lower breast cancer risk, especially if a woman breastfeeds for longer than 1 year. That new group had its first meeting in September, said Lois Wilkinson, the coalition's program manager for education and survivorship.

"To my knowledge, there are no documented incidents of a mammogram exposure resulting in a breast cancer in anybody", he said. It's evident in the smaller details, she said.

Those rocks were put out on Monday at the Buffett Cancer Center for breast cancer patients to see.

One teenager held a sign that reads "Please save my mum", as a woman stands next to her with a hand on her shoulder. She went to the Miami Cancer Institute at Baptist Health South Florida for treatment.
