TURNING UP THE PINK THIS OCTOBER

5women_700

Care Resource is actively involved in the fight against breast cancer by helping women get tested to find breast cancer earlier, help them understand their treatment options and cope with the physical and emotional side effects.

According to Sanique Olkuch, ARNP, Associate Medical Director  with Care Resource, “Early detection of breast cancer with screening mammography means that cancers can be diagnosed early and treatment can be started earlier in the course of the disease, possibly before it has spread. Getting a high-quality screening mammogram is the most effective way to detect breast cancer early and help reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer among women ages 40 to 74. The decision to start regular, biennial screening mammography before the age of 50 years should be an individual one and discussed with your Care Resource medical provider. I encourage all women to work with your Care Resource medical provider, if concerned about screening mammograms and discuss your concerns with your provider. Together you can decide what’s best for you based on your individual breast cancer risk. Your provider will be able to show you the benefits, risks and limitations of screening mammograms and the role of breast self-exams in helping you become more familiar with your breasts, which may help you identify abnormalities or changes.”
