Facts and Trends You Need to Know
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, providing an opportunity for everyone to become familiar with the facts and prevention methods associated with this disease. Consider this: more than 3.8 million people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with breast cancer and it kills more than 42,000 people each year. How can we all work together to reduce the incidents of this disease in the years to come?
Extensive research has been done to determine the actual factors that increase risk. (For more information on that research, see Factors That Affect Breast Cancer Risk at Susan G. Komen®.) Some of the risk factors that have been studied include: weight gain, race and ethnicity, inherited gene mutations, menopausal hormone therapy, and exercise.
