"The modalities for preventing, and controlling breast cancer are well known".

Mammograms can help reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer and knowing the truth about screening could help save lives. While self-examinations are not a conclusive screening for breast cancer, they are a starting point, and if you feel anything abnormal, you can then follow up with your doctor. Many women see treatment as one size fits all.

King persisted because a significant amount of statistical data generated around the world from the 1920s indicated that daughters of women who died of breast cancer were more likely to develop and die from the disease themselves. Breast cancer treatment side effects, such as skin sensitivity, may occur.
