RPPD Selling Breast Cancer Awareness T-Shirts

Every year around 4,600 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and nearly 1,000 people will die of it.

Medical Director at Mercy Breast Care Center Dr. Adnan Qalbani says that regular check-ups are crucial.

"Breast cancer is not one disease, pancreatic cancer is not once disease, colon cancer is not one disease, there are a few different cancers that go into each of those", adds Dr. Qalbani.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease and to help those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services.

A genetic test that accurately predicts the risk of developing breast cancer could reduce the number of women choosing pre-emptive mastectomy surgery, according to a new study. Prof Gareth Evans, who led the research into the test at Manchester University Foundation Trust, says women with a BRCA mutation have a risk of breast cancer somewhere between 30% and 90%. "But you should try and be on a limited dose, and you should be on it the shortest period of time you can".

"You've got to live your life, and enjoy it", said Dr. Qalbani.

Many people believe clinical trials are used as a last resort for a person suffering not only from breast cancer but any cancer.
