National Breast Cancer Expert Available for Comment - October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

FLUSHING, N.Y., Oct. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by New York Hospital Queens:

WHO: Karen Karsif, M.D., Director of The Breast Center at New York Hospital Queens, as well as other experts from The Cancer Center are available to speak about breast cancer risks, prevention and the importance of early detection. New York Hospital Queens has services for breast cancer patients to facilitate their treatment planning, such as a patient 'navigator' who helps guide patients through the medical system and their decisions.

WHAT: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Breast Center at New York Hospital Queens offers an ongoing message of hope and knowledge: "Be aware. You can take control of your risks."

WHY: Many individuals have a significant opportunity to protect breast health in addition to regular breast self-exams and annual mammograms. Specifically:

-- Gender does not equal protection. Approximately 2,000 new cases of male

breast cancer are diagnosed in America each year; 180,000 cases are

diagnosed in women, according to the American Cancer Society.

-- Genetic risks can be profiled. A counselor can help determine risk

level, recommend further evaluation and early detection screenings. The

Breast Center offers the services of a genetic counselor to help

individuals understand their risk of cancers involving genetic issues.

Some insurance plans will cover genetic counseling.

-- Clinical studies show that daily living choices can make an impact,

including: alcohol consumption, diet, and exercise.
