Wellness Wednesday: Understanding Breast Cancer – Risk, Prevention, and Screening Education for Everyone
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among US women, affecting about 1 in 8 women during their lifetime. While less common, breast cancer can also occur in men. The risk for breast cancer increases with age, so it is especially important for anyone over age 50 to be educated about breast cancer risk. During this talk, preventive medicine physicians will review breast cancer risk factors, prevention strategies, and the variety of current screening guidelines. We will also highlight what local resources are available for breast cancer education and screening.
