Breastfeeding correlates with a decreased chance of developing breast cancer and (I believe) helps prevent it.

According to studies, there is a 20% increase in risk for women who began their periods before age 12 than there is for women who began their periods after age 14. The earlier you start your period, the higher your exposure to estrogen, and high lifetime exposure to estrogen is an important risk factor.

No one is safe. Breast cancer can occur in anyone, no matter what age, gender, race or nationality.

5 Catherine copeland October 14, 2008 at 8:03 pm

women should do a self check in the shower every month right around the same day. So for example my birthday falls on the tenth so i will check on the tenth of every month. this helps me remember to do this important check

I always try to avoid driving near cars/trucks that have obvious exhaust coming out of them, but reading this makes me want to move to farm country.

“Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), products of combustion present in air pollution, auto exhaust, and diesel, are identified as probable human carcinogens.”

Its not just women who get it, men get it too.

20 Marlena U. October 15, 2008 at 9:38 am

I am a strong advocate for early detection. Here’s some great facts on what to look for…

“One of the earliest signs of breast cancer can be an abnormality that shows up on a mammogram before it can be felt. The most common signs of breast cancer are a lump in the breast; abnormal thickening of the breast; or a change in the shape or color of the breast. Finding a lump or change in your breast does not necessarily mean you have breast cancer. Additional changes that may also be signs of breast cancer include:

Any new, hard lump or thickening in any part of the breast
Change in breast size or shape
Dimpling or puckering of the skin
Swelling, redness or warmth that does not go away
Pain in one spot that does not vary with your monthly cycle
Pulling in of the nipple
Nipple discharge that starts suddenly and appears only in one breast
An itchy, sore or scaling area on one nipple”

When breast cancer is detected at an early stage of development, a number of effective treatment options are available. The basic treatment choices for breast cancer are surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and hormonal therapy. Early detection is very important!

23 Terry C October 15, 2008 at 10:46 am

Breast cancer incidence in women has increased from 1 in 20 in 1960 to 1 in 8 today (about 12%).

St. John’s wort is being researched as an effective slow-down and possible reverse to breast cancer.

25 Brooke October 15, 2008 at 10:50 am

If you are diagnosed with breast cancer as an elderly woman, it is much easier to manage because it spreads so slowly. I know this because my grandmother was diagnosed at 85.

26 Angie E October 15, 2008 at 11:10 am

Support your local “Relay for Life” every year! It is such a good cause and they are really close to a cure! Do your mammogram yearly, don’t put it off!

Nice giveaway!
Thank you!

Fact: It is the 6th highest killer of American women. Sobering.

28 meaghan f. October 15, 2008 at 12:19 pm

It happens to more men than you think.

29 Roxy October 15, 2008 at 12:57 pm

Early detection of breast cancer with self-checking every month and regular check-ups with your physician as well as annual mammograms decrease the mortality rate from breast cancer

30 kathy pease October 15, 2008 at 1:07 pm

After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women

35 Crystal October 15, 2008 at 3:57 pm

I did not know this, Limit alcohol. Evidence suggests that a small increase in risk exists for women who average two or more drinks per day. Thank you!

36 Amanda A October 15, 2008 at 4:13 pm

Having an immediate male relative with prostate cancer increases your risk of breast cancer – I had absolutely NO idea of this!! Thank you

37 Matthew October 15, 2008 at 5:20 pm

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women

38 Traci October 15, 2008 at 5:38 pm

Inflammatory breast cancer is something everyone should know about because:
1) It is extremely deadly
2) It is NOT able to be caught by mammogram

When doing self-examinations, also do a visual check. The biggest sign of this is puckering or a change in size. If there are unexplained changes in appearance, schedule an appointment ASAP, just to be on the safe side.

39 Ann October 15, 2008 at 5:56 pm

Smoking increases your change of getting breast cancer by 32%.

PLEASE do self exams everyone, you are special to someone in this world.

What a wonderful way to get people to learn more, big kudos to you for doing this website!

40 DL Stephens October 15, 2008 at 7:57 pm

Most women find the breast cancer while doing their monthly self-exams. No one know your own body than you.

41 Peggy Gorman October 15, 2008 at 10:02 pm

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women,this cancer does not give pain so we have to make sure we give ourself a breast exam,catch it early!

42 KATHI October 15, 2008 at 10:31 pm

I have lost friends to breast cancer and have friends who are survivors and just finished a walk for breast cancer. Every woman over the age of 30 should have a yearly mamagram and if you have family history you should start earlier. I would love this pediegg to give to my friend who is a breast cancer survivor.

43 Samantha Pruitt October 15, 2008 at 10:51 pm

44 Bev October 15, 2008 at 11:46 pm

It is estimated that 182,460 women will be diagnosed with and 40,480 women will die of cancer of the breast in 2008–how sad and scary!!

45 Amy October 15, 2008 at 11:53 pm
