It's October! It's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer

More recently, more sophisticated targeted treatments are being used to treat cancer that has spread beyond the breast. "However, with a 10-15% increase in the last decade, breast cancer has overtaken cervical cancer in terms of the number of cases reported", this was stated by Dr Veda Padma Priya, senior consultant, surgical oncology at a private hospital on Sunday.

Research from Cleveland Clinic in the U.S. took the first step towards understanding the composition of the bacteria in breast cancer by uncovering distinct microbial differences in healthy and cancerous breast tissue. NJCEED is a program that offers free breast, colorectal, prostate and cervical cancer screenings to individuals who can not afford their deductible or co-pay, or do not have insurance.

"In our wildest dreams, we hope we can use microbiomics right before breast cancer forms and then prevent cancer with probiotics or antibiotics", he said.

Researchers examined the tissues of 78 patients who underwent mastectomy for invasive carcinoma or elective cosmetic breast surgery.

Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women in their lifetimes. Mammograms will be taken and read on that day, meaning that you will get your results the same day. In addition, they examine rinse and oral urine to determine the composition of bacteria in distant places in the body.

He adds it's a 98 percent cure rate for stage one breast cancer.

Approximately 550 women will die each year in CT from breast cancer. The site reports that an estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed by the end of 2017, along with 63,410 new cases of noninvasive (in situ) breast cancer. Teams and families from across the state will gather to raise money for breast cancer research.

Breast cancer death rates declined nearly 40 percent between 1989 and 2015, averting 322,600 deaths, according to the American Cancer Society.
