Unless you’ve lived on a deserted island or “under a rock” for the past couple of decades, you know that October is officially Breast Cancer Awareness month. I’m sure you have seen a lot of advertisements about the cause as well as the infamous pink ribbon and other pink merchandise.

Here are some facts about this disease that I think everyone should familiarize themselves with. Not only women – men can get breast cancer too. My father had breast cancer back in the 80’s. He had to have his left breast removed. Back then the surgery wasn’t as nice and neat as it is today. He had a massive scar going across his chest.

Each year, nearly 1.4 million women are diagnosed with breast cancer. (Source: GLOBOCAN 2008)

Breast cancer is more common in post-menopausal women; however, people of any age can get breast cancer. Women under the age of 50, make up 25% of breast cancer cases. (source : Breast Cancer Society)

It is possible to pinpoint risk factors, i.e. inherited gene mutations, family history, and then makes lifestyle changes that reduce risks. However, breast cancer is not preventable and largely occurs by chance. Around 70% of women diagnosed with breast cancer did not possess identifiable risk factors. (source : Breast Cancer Society)

Mammography is the most effective method of early detection. Studies show that mammograms can spot tumors up to three years before they might be detectable by feel, greatly improving the prognosis. Early detection of breast cancer also means a wider range of treatment options, including less aggressive surgery and adjuvant therapy (source : Breast Cancer Society)

When detected early, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer is 98 percent.

Mammograms can spot tumors up to two years before you can feel them. Or that when detected early, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer is 98 percent (American Cancer Society)

Despite these facts – only half of U.S. women ages 40 and older got an annual mammogram last year (Medco Health Solutions Inc.)

I’m in my 40’s now. I have to admit that I haven’t had yearly mammograms. I know I should, but I find the experience to be uncomfortable. I have small boobs, and they are dense, so trying to get them to work with the “boob squishier” machine (as I call it) is easier said then done. I know that is not a good enough excuse. I should suck it up and deal with it for a few minutes – especially when it means it could save my life.

I am not the only one who makes up excuses. Some common excuses women make are;

“I’m concerned it will hurt.” – Yes, it is uncomfortable for many women, but the discomfort only lasts a few minutes. Isn’t your health and your life worth a few minutes of discomfort?

I’m worried about radiation.” – I am not an expert when it comes to radiation. I know there is a shield you can request for your neck area if you are worried about radiation. Talk to your doctor about this.

Breast cancer doesn’t run in my family.” – That doesn’t matter. Breast cancer can hit anyone at any time – women and men, teens and adults. No one is truly safe from breast cancer.

I don’t want to get bad news.” – Who does? Yes, it’s scary, but the key is early detection so you can get treated right away.

I’m just too busy.” – This is your health!!!! This is your life!!! I think it’s worth an hour of your time.

Philips is a company that cares about people. They want to improve people’s lives through innovation. When it comes to breast cancer awareness, Philips strives to make early detection and personalized care a reality for all women. rsonal, relevant & impactful. We have a constant dialogue with consumers across the world – learning what is important in their lives, what obstacles do they face, what are their hopes. In terms of breast cancer awareness, we strive to make early detection and personalized care a reality for every woman.

Philips is taking action to help fight breast cancer.  

In 2013, Philips continues to support Breast Cancer Awareness through its global, multi-year program

2013 marks the second year of Philips’ long-term commitment to improving the lives of people around the world by supporting Breast Cancer Awareness

Through its support of Breast Cancer Awareness, Philips wants to raise awareness for the importance of early detection, facilitate free testing to women and support ground-breaking international research through donations

Building on the technology, expertise and passion across its three sectors – Healthcare, Lighting and Consumer Lifestyle – Philips hopes to add meaningful and sustainable value to the cause and help drive the fight against breast cancer

As a part of Philips global campaign, Philips is:

    • Illuminating landmarks Pink around the world (more about this below).
    • Raising money for breast cancer research.
    • Facilitating discussions around the theme of breast cancer prevention with the importance of early detection and the importance of low dose mammography screening technology.

Philips collaborated with clinicians and researchers to help deliver the highest level of personalized care to women – especially those touched by breast cancer. Philips’ low-dose, advanced breast screening and targeted, image-guided diagnostic and treatment solutions are designed to be comfortable, accurate and tailored to suit the unique needs of women everywhere.

I like that Philips Micro Dose mammography provides outstanding images at an 18 to 50 percent lower radiation dose compared with other full field digital mammography systems, with an average dose reduction of 40 percent. That sounds pretty good to me.

The key advantage for patients is the lower dose offered by the Micro Dose mammography system. Women’s breasts are sensitive to radiation, and it is therefore crucial that the mammography equipment exposes women to as little radiation as possible. Micro Dose is tailored for high-volume breast cancer screening where a large number of healthy women are examined on a regular annual or bi-annual basis. The state-of-the-art ergonomic design, with warmed, curved breast support, enables clinicians to perform the examination in less than five minutes, and provides outstanding patient comfort. Built with both patients and clinicians in mind, as many as 15 four-image examinations per hour can be performed, while the ergonomic design helps reduce the risk of work-related, repetitive strain injuries to technologists.

This is a tradition that we do every year and my kids really enjoy it.
