Many women with breast cancer are working at the time of diagnosis and would benefit from understanding how their treatment decisions might affect their employment. Most research has been done on the "gut" microbiome, or bacteria in the digestive tract. But researchers have long suspected that "microbiomas" exist in breast tissue and play a role in breast cancer but have not been characterized.

Self-examination is not enough to detect early-stage breast cancer, the Health Promotion Administration (HPA) said, urging women to get regular mammograms as recommended by the WHO.

"In our wildest dreams, we hope we can use microbiomics right before breast cancer forms and then prevent cancer with probiotics or antibiotics", he said. In addition, they examined urine and bacteria in the mouth to determine the bacterial composition of these distant sites in the body. It is crucial to continue efforts to bring awareness, educate, continue medical advancements and screen to continue to add to the 3.3 million breast cancer survivors that are alive today in the United States.

More than 200 police personnel were also deployed to help cordon off the area of the explosion, making it hard to access. A major gas explosion hit Accra , Ghana's capital city, leaving at least three people dead and more around 35 injured.

"Seinfeld" actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus tweeted on September 28: "1 in 8 women get breast cancer". To examine how employment experiences are impacted by different types of breast cancer treatment, Reshma Jagsi, MD, DPhil, of the University of MI, and her colleagues surveyed women aged 20 to 79 years diagnosed with stages 0-II breast cancer as reported to the Georgia and Los Angeles SEER registries in 2014 and 2015. "If you do have cancer, the sooner it's found, the more likely it is to be successfully treated".

As Breast Cancer Awareness Month continues, it's important to celebrate the victories, while remaining vigilant in our fight against the disease.

"Because of good mammography and good treatment, the breast cancer mortality rate has diminished by 35 percent", Stewart said.
