A Conversation with the people of the Harford County Health Department and Corrie Reed of the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health
Breast Cancer Awareness
In this episode, Rich has a conversation with the people of the Harford County Health Department and Corrie Reed of the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health.
In the United States, breast cancer is the biggest cancer killer of women, second only to lung cancer in terms of overall mortality. Screening for breast cancer is crucial since most women have no symptoms in the early stages, when the tumor is tiny and treatment is most effective. A painless lump is the most typical physical symptom. Breast cancer that has progressed to the lymph nodes under the arm may create a lump or swelling there before the primary tumor in the breast is big enough to be felt. Infrequent symptoms include nipple alterations including spontaneous discharge (particularly if bloody), scaliness, or retraction, as well as breast soreness or heaviness, dimpling, swelling, thickness, or redness of the breast skin, and so on. A doctor should be consulted about any breast changes that persist over time.
Community agencies, minority groups, hospitals, local companies, government, and private residents all contribute to the Harford County Health Department’s Community Cancer Coalition. These representatives collaborate with the Health Department’s Cancer Prevention Program personnel to inform citizens of Harford County about the services available via this program. Anyone or any group with an interest in addressing issues related to cancer awareness, early detection, and care may join the Community Cancer Coalition. Please call (410) 942-7930 for membership details or questions.
