It is my husband's birthday today.
I thought it would be interesting to tie his age (50ish) to what we need to think about health wise. More importantly how to be more 'Breastsmart'.
The stats are a little overwhelming to say the least. What I have learned is that the peak of bell curve graph of diagnosis for breast cancer is in the 50 to 60 range.
All the stats are also telling me that survival rates in developed nations are better than they have ever been - due to early detection.
I know I have said it before - I'll say it again. Check your breasts. Do breast self exams. Get a clinical exam from your doc. Get a mammogram.
Make it a birthday present to yourself.
