October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so The Wright Center for Women’s Health wants to spread the word that early detection saves lives! A simple blood test could save your life, but not if you don’t know about it.

Did you know:
– Each year approximately 232,000 women are diagnosed with Breast Cancer
– Approximately 10% of all Breast Cancer is due to an inherited genetic mutation (like BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations)
– Detecting genetic mutations can help prevent a deadly Breast Cancer diagnosis

Knowledge is power! Those with a personal or family history of certain histories of cancers may be at increased risk for Hereditary Cancers. Take this 30-second quiz to see if you might be at risk for Hereditary Breast Cancer.

Cancer Survivor Month

This month we honor and celebrate all those who have beat cancer and who are still in the process of beating cancer. You are strong, brave, and tenacious. Make sure you are alive and not just existing. Go out and change your world!

Genetic Cancer Testing

This information was provided by our rep from Myriad Lab; When speaking to genetic testing, Dr. Wright and Darchell Darby, (our Physician Assistant) are doing something few providers are, and that’s using a panel test to assess a patient’s specific cancer risk! Everyone is familiar with BRCA1 and BRCA2. However, with the myRisk Hereditary Cancer Panel, the practice tests for BRCA1 and BRCA2 as well as 23 other genes that are known to increase the risk for a common cancers such as breast, ovarian, endometrial, colon, prostate, pancreatic, gastric, and melanoma. Just another great way to really give, the absolute best in quality healthcare!!
