Web Site Helps Women Evaluate Risk of Breast Cancer
Date:11/16/2007

Free online breast cancer risk test promotes early detection to maximize a

woman's chance for survival.

EVERGREEN PARK, Ill., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2007, more than 178,000 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, other than skin cancer, and it is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.

Little Company of Mary Hospital and Health Care Centers, located near Chicago in Evergreen Park, Illinois, has developed a new web site (http://www.PursuingPainFreeCancer.org/breastcancer) to help women learn about breast cancer and evaluate their own breast cancer risk. Knowing one's risk can significantly improve a woman's chance for surviving breast cancer. The size of a breast cancer and how far it has spread are the most important factors in predicting a patient's prognosis. The earlier breast cancer is found, the better the chances that treatment will work.

Little Company's web site features a free confidential on-line risk test to help women evaluate their breast cancer risk. The web site's breast cancer risk test evaluates a woman's risk based on certain genetic and lifestyle factors that doctors believe affect one's breast cancer risk, such as: personal and family medical history, obesity, ethnicity, menstrual periods, smoking, alcohol consumption, and others.

"Today, breast cancer is a highly curable disease, and in the big picture, women's lives should not be affected by it," says Dr. Olga Ivanov, medical director of Little Company's Comprehensive Breast Health Center. The goal is to diagnose cancers before they begin to cause symptoms. "We want women not just to be relieved from the cancer but to resume the quality of life they had prior to having it," says Dr. Ivanov.
