My mom is a breast cancer survivor, so this issue is close to my heart. It is important to continue to support breast cancer research and raise awareness to others. While research is improving and there is also a lesser known way to detect breast cancer called thermography, which may even be safer than mammograms, it is important that women, especially those with a history of breast cancer in their family do regular self-examinations and get annual mammograms or testing. Despite what conflicting research has said on this topic I still feel prevention and regular mammograms or testing after age 30 are important in early detection. My mom may not be here today if she didn't get tested regularly and have a mammogram. So make sure you see your doctor regularly and that you do a self-examination at least once a month!
