Approximately 266,120 women (and 2,550 men) in the U.S. will be told they have invasive breast cancer in 2018. Breast cancer ranks second as a cause of cancer death in women, and the risk of a woman having breast cancer increases as she gets older. Understanding your risk factors, such as age, is important and this month’s Health Night program will focus on the risk factors you can and cannot change, as well as discuss new and exciting advancements in breast cancer reduction.
