Breast Cancer Survivor Thanks Early Detection For Saving Her Life

Breast cancer affects one in eight women in the world, and causes a death every 13 minutes.

according to the Susan G. Komen Foundation,

There are two major breast cancer risk factors that cannot controlled: getting older and being a woman. However, early screening has been shown to reduce breast cancer deaths as those with the disease are able to have it diagnosed and treated before the cancer progresses to a terminal stage.

Doctors and cancer organizations all recommend that women use early detection methods to increase their chances of finding and beating the disease before it spreads.

According to CBS Raleigh affiliate WRAL, Samantha Callich not only is aware of the importance of early detection, but credits it with saving her life. The breast cancer survivor was only 19 years old when she was diagnosed.

Callich had been getting hormone treatments for her endometriosis, a condition where tissue from the uterus grows outside of the organ. The hormone therapy can increase the risk for developing tumors, so when Callich found lumps in one of her breasts, the doctors weren’t terribly concerned. They thought the tumors would be benign.

However, Callich’s tumors grew and a needle biopsy found they were cancerous. The brave teen had a lumpectomy, which removed a majority of her breast.Since then, she has had reconstructive surgery. She is cancer free and has a positive outlook on life. Callich stresses that all women should pay attention to their bodies and address any issues immediately.

The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed some elective procedures on hold, leading to a substantial decline in cancer screenings, the American Cancer Society reports. Breast cancer is sometimes found after symptoms appear, but many women with breast cancer have no symptoms. This is why regular breast cancer screening is so important.

Doctors and scientists are working hard to produce breakthrough findings that will make strides toward this lofty goal. But we can also come together and declare a real end to breast cancer.

According to the American Cancer Society, finding breast cancer early and getting state-of-the-art cancer treatment are meanwhile still the most important strategies to prevent deaths from breast cancer. Before it comes to that point, get yourself screened and share these facts with those close to you.
