In the European Union one of every 8 women suffer from breast cancer, being the number one cause of death from a cancer disease in women aged between 35 and 55 years.
While the number of cases and incidence rates slowly increase, mortality figures drop, largely due to a better outcome of treatment and early detection.
Our primary purpose, therefore, is to encourage image techniques and clinical care appropriate for each woman based on her personal and family characteristics of risk for an early diagnosis of malignant breast disease.
Today, approximately 25% of cases of breast cancers occur in women under 50 years and in Spain under 5% of women have had a mammogram before that age. It is this age, a time of change in women that is our main concern and we want to focus on.
Aim to save lives:
The advice on screening programs We consider it necessary to advise each woman what are the tests that exist for the detection and when they should be performed. It is essential to make society aware of the importance of carrying out a proper clinical examination of the breasts and teach how to perform breast selfexamination as well as provide information on the benefits of participating in a program of early detection of breast cancer.
