Breast cancer affects about 12 percent of women in the U.S., according to BreastCancer.org, and it’s been on the decline since the late 1980s. The decline has been attributed to decreases in hormone-replacement therapies, as well as increased awareness and early diagnosis, thanks to organizations like Beaumont Health, Susan G. Komen, Cancer.org, and BreastCancer.org.
In fact, five-year survival rates for breast cancer patients treated by Beaumont breast cancer specialists exceed the national average. The Beaumont team attributes that to its state-of-the-art diagnostic technology and its advanced-trained staff.
The best defense against breast cancer is prevention and early detection, which is why Beaumont presents this downloadable ebook, “Complete Guide to Breast Health,” to help you understand:
- risk factors for breast cancer
- how to do self-exams
- the best diagnostic tools, including types of mammograms (yes, you have options)
- genetic counseling and screening
