Breast Cancer Detection

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Early detection improves survival. According to the Susan G. Komen® website, “Tumors in the breast tend to grow slowly. By the time a lump is large enough to feel, it may have been growing for as long as 10 years. (Some tumors are aggressive and grow much faster). Between 50-75 percent of breast cancers begin in the milk ducts, about 10-15 percent begin in the lobules and a few begin in other breast tissues. Invasive breast cancer occurs when abnormal cells from inside the milk ducts or lobules break out into nearby breast tissue.” We are striving to increase awareness of the disease through education screenings, and expand research and treatment.
