Mammogram: A Screening Test that Could Help Save Your Life
October 4, 2015

Scheduling your yearly check-up with your SIMED doctor? Make sure to discuss scheduling the tests you need to find breast cancer early. It could help save your life.

Regular mammograms can help find breast cancer early, when the disease is small, less likely to have spread, and easier to treat.

Getting tested for breast cancer can make a dramatic difference in a woman’s chances of surviving the disease. The 5-year survival rate for breast cancer that has not spread to lymph nodes or other locations outside the breast is 99%. However, if the cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes, the rate drops to 85%. And if it has spread to other organs, the 5-year survival rate drops to 25%.

So don’t wait –remind the women you care about to get regular mammograms.

Testing for breast cancer is not perfect and mammograms can miss some breast cancers, so be sure to tell your doctor right away about any changes you notice in the way your breasts look and feel. And if you know you have a family or personal history of breast cancer or think you might be at higher risk than other women, discuss this with your doctor so you can decide on the screening schedule that’s right for you.

Speak with your SIMED healthcare provider today to learn how you can schedule your mammogram.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Help Finish the Fight Against Breast Cancer
October 1, 2015

Ocotober is national Breast Cancer Awareness month and SIMED wants you to be informed!

Stay Well: This year, it is estimated that more than 231,840 women in the United States will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. Excluding cancers of the skin, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women. It’s the second leading cause of cancer death in women (after lung cancer). For now, the best way we have to find it early is to get regular mammograms and continue to do so as long as you’re in good health. Talk to your SIMED health care provider about when you should start. In addition, there are steps you can take to help you stay well and reduce your risk of breast cancer:
  • Get to and stay at a healthy weight
  • Stay active
  • Limit alcohol to no more than one drink a day, if you drink at all.
Get Well: This should be the focus if you or someone you care about is facing breast cancer.  There are organizations that are available to help such as The American Cancer Society.  The American Cancer Society can help you through every step of the cancer experience. The Society offers access to free transportation and lodging when treatment is away from home, and can provide one-on-one support from breast cancer survivors who have been there.

Find Cures: Research institutions, programs and charities fund and conduct research that helps us better understand, prevent, and find cures for breast cancer – and all cancers.

We appreciate SIMED’s collaboration in helping our members become engaged with their preventive health care.”

Through the PATH program physicians track and identify gaps in patients’ care with the goal of improving health outcomes. Physicians who meet the PATH program’s clinical and quality goals for patient health outcomes are recognized annually for their efforts. In 2014, SIMED was among approximately 1,000 practices nationwide that successfully met the program’s goals. 

“At the end of the day, the only thing that really matters is patient outcomes,” sa
