So, by now you probably know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You’ve seen pink ribbons, pink football gear, and more pink, pink, pink. In 2011, it is projected that new cases of invasive breast cancer will strike 230,480 women in 2011. And, although traditionally associated with women, breast cancer can strike men as well. Awareness saves lives, allowing for earlier treatment with fewer complications.
But, not all lumps and bumps in the breast signify cancer. How do you tell the difference between normal lumpy tissue and potential problems? And how do you perform a breast self-exam anyway? Why should you care about 3D breast imaging?
Scary questions to be sure. But, Dedham Health is working with Dr. Valerie Fein-Zachary, Co-Director, Breast Imaging Fellowship, at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, to remove the mystery from this unsettling disease. Please join us on Tuesday, October 25 from 6:30 – 7:30 PM for our Not Everything is Pink event. Get your questions answered by this renowned expert on breast cancer and breast imaging. Admission is free and open to members and non-members alike.
We hope to see you there!
