Breast cancer is Aegon's biggest CI claim cause

In the majority of cases, the cancer is detected only when women either have a lump or discharge from the breast, doctors said. According to the Qatar Cancer Registry, the risk of women in the population developing breast cancer is 56 per 100,000. Nearly 50% of breast cancer patients first visit the doctor when they are in stage 3 and 15-20% of patients visit when they are in stage 4, the researchers said following discussions with oncologists.

Radiation for post-op patients might be delayed until further chemo is administered, depending on how much tumor was found in the breast after surgery.

The World Health Organization (WHO) will also incorporate the guidelines into the fifth edition of its major "Blue book" and "Classification of Tumours of the Breast" from next year, said the university. In about four to six weeks following treatment, Jackson said the surgical area should heal but side-effect symptoms from the radiation or chemotherapy may still need treated.

The American Cancer Society stated that in 2014 about 237,000 women and 2,200 men were diagnosed with breast cancer and almost 465 men and 41,211 women in the USA succumbed to breast cancer.

The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Topeka is right around the corner, but there's no time to waste when it comes to finding a cure.

Till recently, there were no standard guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. The Breast Cancer Landscape in India, a white paper by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), which aims to provide insights regarding status and challenges in breast cancer care will be released Thursday by Minister of State for Health Anupriya Patel. Ellyn Davidson says knowledge is power and if we know our risks - especially at a young age - we can do something about it. Pink is considered the global symbol of the struggle against this disease.

The disease is not hereditary and is not specific to any age groups, McKinney says.

Certain factors - heredity, obesity, nutrition, menstrual history - increase risks for breast cancers of all types, according to McKinney.

After discovering she inherited the BRCA mutation, which put Ellyn at a greater risk for breast and ovarian cancer, she had her uterus and ovaries removed as well.

It is highly recommended that women self-examine their breasts regularly and consult a doctor should they feel any change.

Have you noticed the prevalence of the color pink that pops up around this time of the year? We do it because it is important to us ... and equally important to you, if you value the flow of trustworthy news and information which have always kept America strong and free for more than 200 years.
