October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Fact: 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer.  Good News: 90% of breast cancer is curable- if caught early!

Dr. Alexandra Thomas, Professor of Hematology and Oncology with Wake Forest Baptist Health, talk with Verne + Wally (WBFJ Radio) about breast cancer awareness.

Dr Thomas will discuss the 3 teared approach to fighting breast cancer including Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment.                     #1 risk factor for breast cancer is alcohol consumption.

Some myths: You should hold off getting a mammogram during COVID?  Mammograms actually cause cancer? Age as a factor (Younger ladies getting BC) + No family history, no risk? Myth…

Call (336) 716-WAKE to schedule a mammogram.
