News For YOU

     

    Due to not having the access to proper healthcare and the absence of urgency to get our breast exams as needed, black women have one of the highest breast cancer mortality rates. But guess who else is up there? ALL MEN. Although the men only account for a small percentage of breast cancer diagnosis they are more likely to succumb to its difficulties and die due to delay in seeking medical attention. Clinics and hospitals barely have regulations for self and breast exams. Men are also more likely to be diagnosed in a later stage with more advanced complications. How often have you heard of a man being told to do a self-exam or get a breast exam?  Ladies and Gentlemen, please stop thinking it wouldn’t happen to you because it can!

 

Women starting as early as age 40 should get yearly exams.

All men with BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 should get a yearly exam starting at age 35.

BUT WE ALL NEED TO DO SELF-EXAMS OFTEN!

Stay Well, Family!
