As part of National Women's Health Week, which is currently going on, health experts are urging more females to seek breast cancer testing and make their health a top priority in their lives.
Lorraine Pace, co-president of Breast Cancer Help, Inc., said that between family and work responsibilities, women have a tendency to lose sight of the importance of their own health. However, Women's Health Week provides them with an excellent opportunity to refocus on this important issue.
"Even if their family does not have a history of breast cancer, that does not mean they will not get breast cancer themselves," she said. "If they feel the slightest lump, they should not wait; they should get it checked out immediately. Since there is still no cure for breast cancer, the best way to combat this deadly disease is with early detection."
Breast cancer is the second most common form of the disease among women, behind only skin cancer, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, Pace stressed that the disease is extremely preventable.
