What Helps the Treatment of Breast Cancer
By Nabta Team
Early detection of breast cancer is important to improve survival rates as well as the quality of life of the cancer survivor. 90% of women diagnosed at the early stages of breast cancer survive for 5 years compared to 15% of women who are diagnosed at a later stage. Early detection of breast cancer is a trifecta of breast self-awareness, well-woman exam, and mammograms. While we’ll give you more details regarding having better breast awareness and mammograms over this month, a well woman exam is an annual check-up by your family physician or gynecologist. This exam will give you an opportunity to discuss your concerns regarding your breast health with a doctor.
