Early detection is important when talking about Breast Cancer. Below are some basic things to know about breast cancer.

There is no sure way to prevent breast cancer. But there are things you can do that might lower your risk, such as changing risk factors that are under your control.

Breast cancer is sometimes found after symptoms appear, but many women with breast cancer have no symptoms. This is why regular cancer screening is so important. Some of the screenings you can have include mammograms, breast ultrasounds and breast MRIs. Learn more about screenings by talking to your physician.

If you've been diagnosed with breast cancer, you've probably heard a lot of different terms used to describe your cancer. Doctors use information from your breast biopsy to learn a lot of important things about the exact kind of cancer you have. You may also need more tests to get more details, such as the stage of the cancer or how fast it is growing.

If you've been diagnosed with breast cancer, your cancer care team will discuss your treatment options with you. It is important that you think carefully about each of your choices. Weigh the benefits of each treatment option against the possible risks and side effects.

Whether you are living with cancer or living after cancer, many women have questions and concerns about life as a survivor.

To get information about any of the above information, please contact your local physician or one of the physicians at Sabetha Family Practice at (785) 284-2141. To get your annual mammogram, please contact Sabetha Hospital Radiology Department at (785) 284-1525.
