October is Breast Cancer awareness month. Today I’m honored to have Tammy Pugh, a nurse practitioner in Mobile, Alabama, on the show. Tammy runs a high risk breast cancer clinic. When she took over the clinic she found that 90% of the patients were women at high risk.
Tammy breaks down the factors that put a woman at high risk of developing breast cancer. She speaks to the value of early detection for long-term survival as well as ways to minimize the risk.
A few of those high risk factors for are:
- Having dense breasts
- Someone without children
- A strong family history of breast cancer
