Free Breast Health Education Seminars Offered at West Chester Hospital on Oct. 25 & 29

In the last decade, breast cancer incidence rates in the U.S. have been decreasing; however, current statistics (breastcancer.org) remain alarming and indicate a continued need for breast health education:

• About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12 percent) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
• In 2014, an estimated 232,670 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 62,570 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
• Further, 2,360 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in men in 2014.

To assist women and men in being proactive with breast health, West Chester Hospital is offering free breast health community seminars this month.

During the seminars, the following questions will be explored: What are common non-cancerous conditions of the breast and how are they treated? What is the recommended schedule of screening tests that women should follow? How does early detection decrease the risk for developing breast cancer? What are the most current treatment options? How can one be proactive to have good breast health?
