HEALTH REPORT: Myths, misconceptions about mammograms

Results from many decades of research clearly show that women who have regular mammograms are more likely to have breast cancer found early, are less likely to need aggressive treatment, and are more likely to be cured.

It said that since the beginning of the year, a total of 3854 women underwent early examination of breast cancer in the centers of the Ministry of Health in the West Bank, of whom 210 cases of suspected breast cancer were ordered to conduct follow-up tests to ensure their safety.

"Breast MRI is the latest advancement in breast cancer diagnostics and is a valuable tool for our board certified radiologists", said Alison Boerner, manager of Radiology at St. Vincent Anderson.

It is also recommended that women regularly self-examine their breasts.

Breast MRI is an imaging technology that uses radio waves and strong magnets to make detailed cross-sectional pictures of the inside of the breast. Of those women, 250,000 were diagnosed when they were younger than 40.

Older women have the largest risk of developing breast cancer, which is why routine mammograms are generally conducted to those over 50. "For someone who has watched family members go through treatment, it's hard to think about that risk for them and the fact that it could be passed down to their children". Breasts that are mostly made up of fat with less breast and connective tissue are considered low density.

The 45-foot, state-of-the-art mobile mammography vehicle, offers three-dimensional (3D) digital mammograms and breast care education to women.

At the eve of the signing of the MoU, Pink Ribbon's CEO Omer Aftab said, "Since the very beginning of our campaign, we have been trying to engage with different corporate organizations as we believe that the corporate sector has some grave responsibility to pay back to the society in terms of human development". For me there is NO EXCUSE for not getting screened. "I've got to check my breast and if I feel a lump, even if I've had a mammogram two months ago, I've got to get this checked out'".

In addition, women between ages 35-39 can request a baseline mammogram, but must have a payment source.

BC women will begin receiving their breast density information starting in mid-October 2018. "We're big proponents of the new professional image policy, and a lot of staff love that. That's why it's so important for women to schedule clinical exams throughout the year".
