Breast Cancer Research

Breast cancer affects millions of women each year. The positive spin on this horrible disease is that many women are survivors and come through just fine with the right treatment. There have been amazing strides in breast cancer research over the last few decades, and that research is constantly expanding. There are a great deal of breast cancer researches working on new ways to diagnose the disease, new medications, and new breakthrough treatments. Many people feel that with enough research, there may be a cure for breast cancer in the near future. This is due in part to the many scientists who have devoted their lives to discovering new ways to deal with the disease. There are many lectures, luncheons, symposiums and theories about breast cancer and all are dedicated to one common goal: finding a cure. There have already been some very effective and good strides thanks to breast cancer research. Today, the typical treatment time takes only about two to nine months. In addition, full recovery time is usually accomplished within a two year period. This is a big improvement in time since days past. In addition to helping ease the treatment and recovery times, researchers have also discovered new risk factors that are important for women to know. For example, new research shows that insulin resistant or diabetic woman have a high risk of breast cancer, as well as obese or overweight women. The possibilities of learning more and more about breast cancer through research are endless, and it is the dedication of those involved who help to make it happen.

Breast cancer research is not cheap, so there are many sources of funding for this type of information. First, the public often makes donations through the form of fundraising and charity events. In addition, merchandise is often sold to help fund the research. The newer pink ribbon campaign has really taken off over the last few years, and it has become an internationally recognized symbol for the fight against breast cancer. The money that is raised through both charitable donations and merchandise sales has really helped to give scientists the materials, laboratories, equipment, and time they need to continue looking for a cure. Many large companies have also jumped on the bandwagon and have created special items that are pink. When someone purchases these items, a portion of the profits go directly to breast cancer research. It is the help of these companies and the general public that encourages researchers to continue on in their quest for a better life for all women who have experienced the pain of breast cancer. Combined with education, this research can save millions of lives. Since breast cancer affects so many women (and men as well), it has really drawn attention for many people, and the awareness level has been raised significantly. Breast cancer researchers know that educating the public is the first and perhaps most important step in helping to prevent breast cancer, or at least to minimize the number of people who have been diagnosed.
