Sample breast cancer screening...

Myths about breast cancer: •Finding a lump in your breast means you have breast cancer. The Truth: Only a small percentage of breast lumps turn out to be cancer. • A mammogram (x-ray of the breast) can cause breast cancer to spread. The Truth: Breast compression while getting a mammogram cannot cause cancer to spread. According to NCI, "The benefits of mammography..nearly always outweigh the potential harm from the radiation exposure" • If you have a family history of breast cancer, you are likely to develop breast cancer, too. The Truth: While women who have a family history of breast cancer are in a higher risk group, most women who have breast cancer have no family history. Source: NBCF Website, Myths
