Police Department Goes Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women after skin cancer. Some patients may also want to discuss with their doctor the possibility of genetic testing to learn if their cancer was caused by an inherited genetic mutation.

The American Cancer Society recommends women begin annual screening mammograms at the age of 45, and women between the ages of 40 and 44 should have the option to start screening with a mammogram every year if they choose.

This year, the goal is to raise $10,000 for the center, said Police Chief David Honda, and the two departments have engaged in a friendly rivalry to see who can sell the most badges. Remember most changes won't turn out to be breast cancer.

Just a year ago the SOMC Cancer Center opened its Breast Center addition on the lower level of the facility.

Another answer could be that there is a history of cancer (though not breast cancer) on one side of my family.

Early breast cancer usually does not have any symptoms, so women are encouraged to understand the role of self-exams in becoming more familiar with their breasts and any abnormalities or changes that might occur. In 2015, the number of prostate cancer deaths overtook the number of breast cancer deaths for the first time.

Some women believe having dense breasts alone should qualify them for MRI screening.

"Other than coordinating breast imaging and Cancer Services, we couldn't do any of that without Dr. Scarpinato's office, the breast surgeon, being located at the new location as well". But I also know women who have breast fed three children and still developed breast cancer.

One answer to why I developed breast cancer is that I was in my 40s and hadn't had a child.

Those numbers, highlighting the importance of getting tested.

Regular self-breast examination and regular mammograms are key to early detection. "They called me and said I have invasive ductal carcinoma which is a form of breast cancer". For the average woman, its about 12.5 percent; for high-risk women, its 20 percent or higher.

She says the Wisconsin Well Woman program can help women who need additional screening.
