Breast Cancer Awareness 101 Presentation at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital

Breast Cancer Awareness 101 Presentation at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital

Sadaf Summer Chaudhry, MD gave a Lunch and Learn presentation at MBSH on Tuesday, April 24 to raise awareness about breast cancer.  She shared interesting facts regarding breast cancer with actions that can be taken for early detection and treatment.

Dr. Chaudhry said 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime and 3 out of 4 women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of the disease and are not considered high risk.  She also said 1 in 6 breast cancers occur in women aged 40-49.  She continued by sharing options women have for discovering breast cancer.  Mammography has helped reduce breast cancer mortality in the United States by nearly 1/3 since 1990.  She said it is recommended by ACR and ACOG that asymptomatic women get yearly mammograms starting at age 40.

Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital has the latest equipment for performing the screening.  Through the BJC HealthCare System, MBSH was able to get 3D Mammography equipment.  3D Mammography allows physicians to examine breast tissue one layer at a time, making it easier to find smaller cancers sooner.  Early diagnosis means less extensive treatment and better outcomes.

In conclusion of her presentation, Dr. Chaudhry recommended 4 things women can do to prevent breast cancer.  She said: Exercise, Eat Healthy, Stop Smoking and Limit Alcohol intake.  “We appreciate Dr. Chaudhry taking the time to raise awareness to women about breast cancer,” said Travis Little, MBHS Radiology Manager.
