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.
