Fall UroGynecology News in Oct. HLN

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Most people in the United States know a friend or family member who has been impacted by breast cancer. The following stats show how much of a widespread issue it is:
  • One in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
  • 246,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed this year.
  • As of this year, there are more than 2.8 million women who have had, or are being treated for, breast cancer.

5 Year Survival Rates Based on Stage

The survival rate of those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer depends greatly on which stage of cancer they have. 

Localized. If the cancer cells have not spread outside of the breast tissue, 99% of women live five years or longer.

Regionalized. If the cancer cells have spread to nearby tissue, 84% of women live five years or longer.

Distant (Metastasis). If the cancer cells have spread to other parts of the body, 26% of women live five years or longer.
The combination of mammography, regular breast exams by your health care professional, and awareness of changes in your breasts may be the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is more easily treated. 
Women who are not at high risk of breast cancer should start breast cancer screening at age 40 and no later than age 50. Women at higher risk may be screened before age 40. Talk to your health care professional about the benefits and risks of mammography. 
In honor of Breast Cancer Month in October & Pelvic Floor Disorders Week, Dr. Croak is offering a special on MonaLisa Touch - an extra savings of $300 extra off our already low pricing.  Call our office to schedule a consultation and ask about our October discount!  

Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) can dramatically affect a woman’s comfort, confidence and quality of life.  We are helping women reclaim their lives with a simple procedure called endometrial ablation.  This is a safe, simple solution used by more than 2 million women since it was FDA-approved in 2001.


Don’t let a period stop you.

One in five women live with very heavy periods. Periods that get in the way of everyday life. Periods that keep you from the people you love and the things you enjoy. Endometrial ablation is a one-time, 5-minute procedure that can lighten – or end your heavy period – without on-going pills and without hormonal side effects. For over 90% of women, menstrual bleeding is dramatically reduced or stopped. Maybe it’s time to step back into life. Ask about the procedure today!

Banana Ghosts and Orange Pumpkins
Boo! Turn bananas into spooky ghosts with chocolate chip eyes and mouths made from chocolate covered raisins. Make a pumpkin patch out of peeled clementines or tangerines. Just use a sprig of celery in the center for the stem!
