(BPT) - A breast cancer diagnosis at any stage can be devastating. However, women with advanced breast cancer are also faced with the overwhelming reality that they must begin additional therapy, or that they will receive treatment for the remainder of their lives. There are an estimated 150,000 women in the United States living with stage IV metastatic breast cancer. Stage III locally advanced breast cancer and stage IV metastatic breast cancer – collectively referred to as advanced breast cancer - are the most progressed forms of the illness.

(NAPSI)—It’s a fact-one in eight women will get breast cancer.1 And until there is a breakthrough cure for all stages of breast cancer, the best way to survive it is to detect it early. Survival rates for early detection are 95 percent, but only 41 percent when diagnosed later.2 With those odds, wouldn’t you like to know your breast cancer risk and be able to do something about it? If yes, chances are you’d probably want the same for your mom, sister, aunt and friends. Fortunately, there is good news for you and your loved ones and all it takes is a visit to your healthcare professional. With all of the right tools and a comprehensive breast health plan outlined by a healthcare professional, you and your loved ones can find out the risk for developing breast cancer and do something about it.
Its a healthy idea to know your cancer risk. (NAPS)
