Every three minutes a woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer. Although breast cancer is a real threat, there are many ways to prevent and treat this disease. In fact, 96 percent of women who find and treat breast cancer early will be cancer-free after five years. That’s a number that has gotten BMC’s attention and is one reason we’ve created a team dedicated to breast health.
