Spreading Breast Cancer Awareness
Our team at Harlingen/San Benito works to improve community health and spread education and awareness on health concerns. Our team would like to share some information on Breast Cancer in South Texas. Please feel free to share! UT Health Science Center states that there is an incidence of 104.1 cases of breast cancer per 100,000 women. Hispanic female population in South Texas have a higher incidence of breast cancer (83.5/100,000) compared to Hispanic female population in Texas. How can we help fight breast cancer and lower these rates? Our team encourages you to ask questions and learn about breast cancer. It is important to ask your doctor about risks, be screened, and if needed, implement a prevention plan that works for you.
