With October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, coming to an end, it's important to note that while pink signage may be replaced, the fight against breast cancer continues.

Scientists are exploring how common gene variations (small changes in genes that are not as significant as mutations) may affect breast cancer risk. She informed them about an important fact: the mortality rate for black women in Colorado is almost 30 percent higher than white women. While many women assume that it is merely the presence of an isolated lump that suggests breast cancer, the truth is that it can also manifest itself as scattered seed-like tumours that spread like tentacles across the breast tissue.

Research has shown that one in three women fail to regularly check their breasts and even those who do so often look only for a lump, not realising there are other possible signs and symptoms of this cancer. An estimated 266,120 women (and 2,550 men) are expected to be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2018, and almost 41,000 women (480 men) will die of the disease. The organization has found that black women have a higher mortality rate due to certain factors including diagnosis at a younger age, a later stage of the disease and a more aggressive form of the cancer. Many people who are diagnosed with cancer also begin to wonder about their mortality.
