Breast cancer screening: New doctor recommendations to know about

StatePoint Media

Breast cancer is the most common

cancer in women and the

fourth leading cause of cancer

death in the U.S. Annual mammograms

have been widely promoted

for women by many health

advocates; however, experts say

that for women with an average

risk for breast cancer who don’t

have symptoms, diagnostic exams

should be administered strategically,

as screening too frequently

can do more harm than good.

In a recent evidence-based

guidance statement published

in “Annals of Internal Medicine,”

representing internal medicine

schke said she feels stronger and younger.

“I share my new insights about diet

and lifestyle with my adult children and

“Next, I am considering follow-up with

the Phase III rehab, more like a gym membership,

or even purchasing a treadmill so

I can follow up with my routine at home.“

Unfortunately, Teschke’s initial dismissal

of symptoms is not uncommon,

especially in women. Her advice: Talk to

your doctor about any minor changes in

physical symptoms and follow the doctor’s

advice.

Teschke’s “tight bra” helped her recognize

symptoms, reduce risk factors and follow

up with new ways to live a healthier

and longer life!
