Myths won't save you from breast cancer.
But facts could.
Breast dancer is the most frequent cause of cancer death among women.
Breast exams are the most effective method of detecting breast cancer.
If these facts are true, why do so many women avoid breast exams?
"Radiation from mammography
is dangerous. This risk is higher than the
risk of breast cancer itself."
Fact: Mammography uses very low
doses of radiation to detect cancer.
Studies have shown that the risk of low
doses is nearly nonexistent. Mammography
and Xeromamography have been proven
to be safe and essential tools for diagnos-
ing early signs of breast cancer. The risk
of the cancer is much higher than the risk
of low doses of radiation.
Myth: It could never happen to me. I'm
Fact: It could happen to you. An
estimated one in eleven American women
will have to deal with breast cancer at
some point in her lifetime. One-third of
the breast cancer cases occur in women
under age 50. It is also the most common
cause of death in wome between the ages
of 40 to 44. With some breast cancers
taking six to eight years to develop, ,
women in their 30's should also be tested
Myth: "If breast cancer is found it is
probably too late anyway. I will have to
get my breast removed. I'd rather not
Fact:, Most breast cancers take more
than six years to develop into a lump that
can be felt. If you wait until you can feel a
lump, it may be too late. If cancer is
detected early enough, you may not have
to have a breast removed. Modern detec-
tion methods can now find cancer in its
earliest stages, long before it can be felt.
Myth: "Breast cancer detection methods
can't be relied on."
Fact: Modern detection methods have
shown to be 97% effective in finding
cancer early. Women's Breast Centers now
offers The Total Breast TestT,m the most
comprehensive combination of modern
techniques with a unique four-step
