  9. What do dense breasts mean for cancer risk?

    Breast cancer risk is influenced by many things, including heredity, age and gender. Breast density is another factor that may affect cancer risk and the ability to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages, say some experts.
  10. History of mammogram technology

  11. The differences between chemotherapy and radiation

  12. Many well-known celebrities have had breast cancer

    Breast cancer remains one of the most common forms of cancer among women, surpassed only by skin cancers. Anyone, even men, can get breast cancer, but gender, age and hereditary factors do put some at greater risk than others.
  13. Life after breast cancer

    The moment a person receives a breast cancer diagnosis, his or her life changes immeasurably. The roller coaster of emotions begins, and suddenly this person is thrust into a schedule of doctor’s appointments, treatments and visits from friends and family.
  14. Cancer screenings men should consider

    Cancer screenings play an important role in cancer prevention. Screenings may not prevent people from getting cancer, but they can detect the presence of cancer before a person begins to experience any signs or symptoms. Screenings also can help doctors catch cancer before it metastasizes, or spreads, to areas of the body outside the area where it originated.
