Is your life so full of work, family, friends and activities that you often don’t have time to take care of yourself? Making time for routine preventive care – like breast cancer screenings – can help you stay healthy for the things you love to do.
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women and is the second leading cause of cancer related death among women in the United States. Three out of four women who develop breast cancer don’t have a family history of it, according to Dr. Andrew Zinkel who specializes in Emergency Medicine at Regions Hospital and is the Associate Medical Director of Quality for HealthPartners’ health insurance plan and the Medical Director of Virtuwell. The good news is, the five year survival rate at Stage 0 or Stage I is 100 percent and at Stage II, it is 93 percent.
