    Being breast aware means familiarising yourself with your breasts and the changes they go through during your life.

    Hope I did this right :)

    Make sure you regularily get a mammogram.

  16. Jenn says:

    FACT: About 85 percent of breast cancers originate in the mammary ducts, while about 15 percent arise in the lobules [5]. Cancerous tumors in the breast usually grow very slowly so that by the time one is large enough to be felt as a lump, it may have been growing for as long as ten years.

    jelichi (at) gmail (dot) com

  17. REGINA says:

    Mammography is especially valuable as an early detection tool because it can identify breast cancer at an early stage, usually before physical symptoms develop when the disease is most treatable.

  18. kamewh says:

    Studies show that early detection, when followed by appropriate treatment, saves lives and increases treatment options. The five-year survival rate for breast cancer is 98 percent among individuals whose cancer has not spread beyond the breast at the time of diagnosis.

    The myth is that if you breastfeed you may be more prone to breast cancer.

    The fact is Breastfeeding may actually decrease the risk of perimenopausal breast cancer.

    THE CDC list these as risk factor, this does not necessarily mean you will get breast cancer:

    As a personal rant: I lost my mom last year to breast cancer. She never got mammograms as we “didn’t have cancer in our family”. They found her cancer after it had spread to a grapefruit sized tumor to her liver and it was too late. Please, please, please get your mammograms. Breast cancer is very treatable if caught early.

    Thank you

  52. Sue says:

    You should check your breast every month if you are 20 years old or older and you should do it 1 week after your period. It is important to do it regularly because then you will know what feels “normal” and will know if anything has changed. Regular breast self-exams helps in early detection.

  59. julie says:

    I love the first comment someone made- it’s honestly sooo true. Many of us are too shy or lazy to take the time to familiarize ourselves with what should and should NOT be in our bodies (just by feeling around, a few minutes a week!)– it could help early detection, which usually results in an easier fight! They are all tough fights, we know that, but the more prepared the better. :)

  60. Ashley says:

    Someone else has probably already said it, but if you have had history of breast cancer in your family you should begin getting mammograms in your 20′s instead of waiting until later.

  61. Claire says:

    Mammograms are really important (I know this has been mentioned) and you should do your research and decide when’s a good age for you to get them, and then have them yearly. Also, even if it’s not really necessary for you to have mommograms in your 20s, breast self-exams every month are very important.

    Breast cancer isn’t just a woman’s disease. Men also have breast tissue that can undergo cancerous changes. While women are about 100 times more likely to get breast cancer, any man can develop breast cancer. Male breast cancer is most common between the ages of 60 and 70.

    Mammography is especially valuable as an early detection tool because it can identify breast cancer at an early stage, usually before physical symptoms develop when the disease is most treatable

    This is a wonderful idea. Here is my fact:
    Your risk of developing breast cancer increases as you get older. About 1 out of 8 invasive breast cancers are found in women younger than 45, while about 2 out of 3 invasive breast cancers are found in women age 55 or older

    Yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health

    I don’t know if this fact has been posted yet, but, at this time, breast cancer cannot be prevented, which is why regular mammograms are so important; they can find breast cancers early, when they are easier to treat.

    Fact: A clinical breast exam should be part of a periodic health exam, about every three years for women in their 20s and 30s and every year for women age 40 and older.

    Fact : It’s important to do a self check on your breast and area near it every month to check for small bumps.

    Studies show that early detection, when followed by appropriate treatment, saves lives and increases treatment options. The five-year survival rate for breast cancer is 98 percent among individuals whose cancer has not spread beyond the breast at the time of diagnosis.

    Close to 90% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of the disease.
