    dr_mayLook anywhere this month and odds are good you will encounter a sea of pink. Pink shirts, pink ribbons, pink signs, pink cleats on the feet of the NFL players we watch every Sunday. Pink is visible as far as the eye can see during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and for good reason. The statistics are sobering. This year alone:

    • More than 230,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed
    • Nearly 65,000 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed
    • 39,620 women will die

    However, there is hope to be found in the data. Death rates associated with breast cancer have been in decline since the late 1980s. This is attributed in part to earlier detection through screening and increased awareness of the disease.

    On October 30, 2013, Shore Physicians Group Breast Surgeon Dr. David May will take part in a Breast Health Education Event at the Shore Medical Center Radiology Department in Somers Point, NJ. From 8 am to 2 pm, he will provide breast screenings and one-on-one consultations, giving local women the information they need to take control of their health. As part of the event, women will receive education about performing self breast exams, while mammogram appointments will be available with a prescription.

    Also included throughout the day will be complementary hand and chair massages, information about the NJ CEED Program for the Uninsured, the Shore Cancer Center and the Shore’s Smoking Cessation Program, giveaways and refreshments.

    As one of the area’s renowned breast surgeons, Dr. May is dedicated to helping women who are coping with a diagnosis of breast cancer. Along with fellow breast surgeon Dr. Jerry O. Batley, Jr., and Dr. Mohit Sood of the Shore Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. May takes part in weekly roundtable sessions at the Shore Cancer Center. Part of the Cancer Center’s multi-disciplinary approach to patient care, these gatherings assemble surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, nurses and patient navigators to determine a patient’s best treatment plan.

    Part of this is learning the value of early detection and prevention. The mammogram is the most effective method for the early detection of breast cancer, with more than 38 million of the screening tests performed annually. However, one-third of women aged 40 and older have not had a mammogram in the past two years.

    With Breast Cancer Awareness Month upon us, it is an ideal time for women to pay attention to their own wellness by learning about proper breast health. Across the country, there are more than 2.8 million women who have survived breast cancer. That’s one statistic Dr. May wants to contribute to, by empowering area women with the information they can use to be proactive about their health.

    “Knowledge is power, and proper education is crucial for women to identify breast health issues early,” said Dr. May. “I look forward to sharing the information they can use to be proactive about their health, so they can lead stronger, healthier lives.”
