Weight loss cuts breast cancer risk

To qualify, the patient must meet the income guidelines, be uninsured or under-insured and have a family history of breast cancer or breast symptoms themselves.

Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women in the United States, with one in eight women diagnosed in her lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society.

The H&M x Rethink capsule collection consists of five limited-edition statement tees created to support breast health and the facts surrounding breast cancer. "The tumor is malignant (cancer) if the cells can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body". Reacting to the development, Rowan Chlebowski, Corresponding author of the paper said: "Our study indicates that moderate, relatively short-term weight reduction was associated with a statistically significant reduction in breast cancer risk for postmenopausal women".

Treatment options for breast cancer depends on how advanced the cancer is at diagnosis, but most often includes removal of the cancer through a breast-conserving lumpectomy or mastectomy if necessary (removing the entire breast), radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or targeted hormone therapy.

They would then be able to be referred by their doctor for an ultrasound, 3D mammography or MRI - to manage their breast cancer risk, Ms Barter said. "As women, we should raise awareness through the importance of self-examination and research to reduce future cases". For each purchase of $39.99 or more, $10.00 will be donated to The American Cancer Society. They miss some cancers.

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

Women who can't afford a mammogram may be eligible to receive a free screening through SJBPH's Women's Wellness Connection. Momspresso, through its repository of over 8000 mommy bloggers who write on varied topics, will disseminate more information about breast cancer and its implications.

While all these findings point towards a stark gap in the knowledge pertaining to breast cancer, they also present a unique opportunity for brands and platforms to raise awareness and arm women with the knowledge required to prepare for and eventually beat this rampant disease. "This can lead to anxiety and unnecessary procedures like a biopsy".

We urge women between 50 and 69 to have a mammogram every two years.

"This is not something you go through and get out of", she said.
