Breast Cancer Prevention

Did you know that 1 in 8 women will be affected by breast cancer during her lifetime? It might not be Breast Cancer Awareness Month anymore, but at Women’s Care we believe it’s important to keep the conversation going all year long. That’s why we sat down with Dr. Valary Gass to talk about the preventative steps we can all take to stay healthy.

Knowing The Symptoms:

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among American women, so it’s important to know the signs that can help with early detection. Some of the symptoms include:
  • Skin changes, such as swelling, redness, or other visible differences
  • An increase in size or change in shape of one or both breasts
  • General pain in or on any part of the breast
  • Changes in appearance in one or both nipples
  • Nipple discharge
  • Lumps or nodes felt on or inside of the breast(s)

Most women who have breast cancer will notice only one or two of these symptoms at first. While the presence of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean you have breast cancer, it should still be investigated by your healthcare provider.

When To Start Screening:

“Factors like your personal and family history can influence how early you start and how often you should be screened,” Dr. Gass explains. The American Cancer Society suggests that women ages 40-44 should have the choice to start annual mammograms.
“Have a conversation with your doctor during this time about when you should start screening,” Dr. Gass says.
Between the ages of 45-55, women should have annual mammograms. After the age of 55, women can choose to have a mammogram every other year or continue with annual mammograms.
“Have an open discussion with your physician about what screening strategy is right for you,” Dr. Gass says.
