Historical and Current Research Points to Importance of Breast Self-Exams

SARASOTA, Fla. (PRWEB) July 23, 2014

The Circuelle Foundation compiled and released independent research results from leading academic institutions uncovering the importance of breast self-exams (BSE). The historical events and opinions surrounding the need for breast self-exams is contradictory and can be confusing at best, but there is proof today for keeping this healthy ritual.

“Women are confused and in many cases mislead about the significance of breast self-exams and becoming breast aware,” explains Melissa Kirkpatrick, founder of The Circuelle Foundation. “It’s time we educate ourselves and our loved ones about proactive breast-awareness healthy rituals that promote early detection; the best deterrent to breast cancer mortality.”

Despite the amount of confusing information surrounding breast self-examination and mammogram screening, reassuring data from highly reputable academic research reveals not only the benefits of, but also the importance of BSE:

  • 46% of breast cancers diagnosed were first found during a breast self-examination (Duke University)
  • 71% of breast cancers detected in younger women (< 40 years old) were first detected by breast self examination (Harvard University)
  • In a study of 782 women under the age of 50, the Mayo Clinic found that these women were more likely to find a lump from breast self-examination than those detected through mammogram screening

“After reviewing dozens studies and references, we are confident in saying breast self-exams are a necessary part of a woman’s health regimen on her path to becoming breast aware,” Kirkpatrick says, “They are simple, inexpensive, non-invasive, non-hazardous and accessible to all. And above all, by definition, they empower women to know their breasts. That knowledge is powerful, as it results in you becoming your best advocate of breast health for your doctor.”

The Circuelle Foundation documented the historical data referenced above in an infographic.

About The Circuelle Foundation: The Circuelle™ Foundation was started to support vital Breast Health Awareness initiatives. Because it’s never too early to be knowledgeable about breast health, The Circuelle™ Foundation is organizing and funding breast self-exam programs in a number of schools. In addition, The Circuelle™ Foundation is also helping fund mammograms at select hospitals and radiology centers, making this essential screening available for free to women with limited financial resources.
