October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

African-American women have worse breast cancer survival than white women in the USA, and a new study suggests that is largely because black women are less likely to have health insurance.

Forbes contributor Rita Rubin explains that, in accordance with a 2013 JAMA study alongside the White House's continuing threat to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, the lack of insurance is why black women are more likely to die of breast cancer than white women.

Breast cancer is easier to treat when caught early yet according to Cancer Care Ontario, only 63 per cent of women in the Norfolk are getting screened through the OBSP for early signs.

It used to be that one in 12 women was diagnosed, and now it's one in eight. These tests are now ordered by the Edmonton Cancer Genetics Clinic and there are specific criteria which must be met in order to be referred to this clinic.

Among the more than three-quarters who had hormone-sensitive disease, the risk of dying during follow-up was twice as high for black women as for white women. If you are at high risk, follow the advice above. She has shared some facts that both women and men should know this month.
