October is Cancer Awareness Month / Breast cancer Awareness Month / Liver Cancer Awareness Month. Every year many people die because of cancer and it is considered as the second cause of death (next to heart disease). Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, no matter your race or ethnicity, and believe me, men can also die because of breast cancer.
It is very important to know the symptoms. If the cancer is located only in the breast, the five-year relative survival rate of people with breast cancer is 99%. If the cancer has spread to the regional lymph nodes, the five-year survival rate is 85%. If the cancer has spread to a distant part of the body, the five-year survival rate is 25%. For all stages combined, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer is 89%, the 10-year rate is 83%, and the 15-year rate is 78%.
