If your blood relative had breast cancer it is good to start to be tested when you 25-30 or 10 years before the age of the relative.
About 2 1/2 million people in the U.S. are cancer survivors.
How to Survive with Breast Cancer?
The first feeling women feel after hearing they have Breast Cancer is shock and often anger.
Don't go to the doctor alone.
Take someone because the doctor gives a lot of information and it can be overwhelming.
Find out more information about the problem.
Get some background on what is happening and ways to help get through it.
Get a second option.
There could be more than one option or right answer for the process.
Get support.
Tell family and friends for support through the time.
The spouse may feel like he has more responsibility like caring for the kids. But they are worried and feel the need to step up and help.The children however; worry to and might become clingy. Some friends may distance themselves. But everyone should be positive no matter what the outcome.
Is the death rate declining?
The American Cancer Society reported that the cancer death rate has dropped 20% in two decades.
They said that people diagnosed with cancer had improved in both medical and behavior changes.
In the years coming up doctors will have a better understanding on cancer and ways to prevent it. They also have ways to early treatment methods and finding it early in the journey.
Medication Improvements
New future with treatment and diagnosis
25% fewer individuals are going to develop secondary breast cancer by 2020.
By 2030, they hope people that develop this will live longer than 5 years.
They are going to do cancer research by getting samples and improving methods of storing, retrieving, organizing, and analyzing data.
20% of all breast cancer will be prevented and 60% will be diagnosed before they are symptomatic in the year 2025.
In 2030, they are expected to know how tumors grow and process.
The drug Perjeta is a treatment for breast cancer that will more likely to be cancer-free by the time of surgery.
Its proscribed by the doctor after the diagnosis and before surgery to help get rid of the tumor.
It helps make the tumor smaller and easier for them to be removed.
Perjeta only works in about 20% of breast cancer patients who have tumors and overproduce protein known as HER-2. This makes cells grow and divide.
