There are few people who by adulthood have not been impacted by cancer in some way. There are 200 different types and about 1 in 3 people will get cancer in their lifetime. One of the most common cancers for women is breast cancer, which will affect 12% of women.
Anyone who has experienced cancer firsthand or through a loved one knows that there is more to this illness than hospital visits. It is a disease that can impact a person’s physical, emotional and spiritual self and there are many ways that you can support a person with breast cancer. Sometimes the most important thing is just to be there to offer support and listen. (National Cancer Association)
Many people believe that breast cancer is mostly an inherited disease. But, only about 5-10% of those diagnosed with breast cancer have a history of it in their family. It is also a myth that living a healthy lifestyle will keep you immune to developing breast cancer. While healthy choices can lower the risk of developing cancer, it is possible to still get the disease. (BreastCancer.org)
People who have been diagnosed with cancer are also at an increased likelihood of being diagnosed with depression and/or anxiety. For example, a third of women diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK experience anxiety throughout their treatment and almost half (45%) experienced it after remission, with reference to a continuous fear about whether the cancer is going to return.
