Breast Cancer Myths

by , under Breast Cancer, Contemporary Cancer Topics

Take this test & see how you do  on it.  It might teach you a few things about breast cancer.  This is just general information.

I found some of this information to be revealing.  I didn’t realize that breast cancer was the leading cause of death for US women between the ages of 35-50.  I was also surprised to see that younger women tend to have more aggressive forms of breast cancer.  I was not surprised about the ineffectiveness of mammograms, but I find it curious that they still recommend them in spite of the fact that they have a 45% failure rate.  But it is telling that over 40,000 women a year succumb to this condition, and that this has been happening for the last 50 years.
