This April, more than 40,000 North
Carolina volunteers will initiate a
National Breast Cancer Detection
Program through door-to-door distri
bution of an American Cancer So
ciety leaflet, "Now Breast Cancer
vHas Virtually Nowhere to Hide."
?J The emphasis on breast cancer is
designed to alert women and their
' physicians to the ease and lmpor
; tance of early breast cancer detec
? tion, especially mammography.
* One in 10 women will develop
I breast cancer sometime in her life.
I In 1987, it is estimated that 3,000
North Carolina women will be diag
* nosed with breast cancer. With early
J detection, 90 percent, or 2,700 of the
v 3,000 women diagnosed with breast
?_ cancer this year, can be treated suc
i cess fully.
Beside monthly breast self-exams
* and periodic breast exams per
.- formed by physicians, the American
Cancer Society recommends a sched
ule of mammography. Mammo
'* grams are low-dose x-rays that help
"see" breast cancer before there's a
"lump, when survival rates are near
Women 35 to 39 years old should
have baseline mammograms which
can be used later for comparisions.
Women 40 to 49 years old should have
mammograms every one to two
years as their doctors direct; women
older than 50 should have mammo
grams every year.
In addition to distributing lifesav
ing messages, volunteers will be
asking for financial support to assist
with educational programs and serv
ices for cancer patients.
