Prevention Expert Available to Discuss Breast Cancer Early Detection

Screenings for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

DALLAS, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- To help educate women on how they can be more proactive regarding breast cancer, U.S. Preventive Medicine(R) (http://www.USPreventiveMedicine.com), a company working to organize and advance a culture of prevention throughout America, today announced its list of screenings to help women with early detection of breast cancer. If detected early, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer exceeds 95%. Mammograms are among the best early detection methods, yet there are other steps consumers can take for early detection.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and each year 182,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and over 43,000 die from the disease. One in eight women either has or will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. While breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer in American women, men are affected as well. Over 1,500 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.

"Early detection of breast cancer dramatically improves the chances of successful treatment. It is therefore crucial for women to be proactive about their screenings," said Dr. Boyd Lyles, Chief Medical Officer, U.S. Preventive Medicine. "With today's technology advancements, women are able to stay ahead of the curve and become more knowledgeable about the proper screenings to have administered and discuss with their doctor the frequency in which to have them."
